In response to a new report from the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry showing a drastic decline in the number of industry clinical trials, Nicola Perrin MBE, CEO of the Association of Medical Research Charities said:

“These figures are very concerning. A drop of this magnitude in access to clinical trials in the UK is damaging both to the UK’s position as a world leader in research, but also for the many patients that benefit from participating in clinical research. 

"While we recognise the huge strains that the NHS is facing, urgent action is needed to ensure that the UK remains an attractive place for funders to support clinical trials.”
