In response to the final report of the Independent Review of Research Bureaucracy Dr Catriona Manville, Director of Research Policy, Association of Medical Research Charities said:

“We welcome the report’s recommendations, and the need to remove unnecessary bureaucracy so that researchers can focus on research that saves and improves lives.

“As a member of the review's Funders Forum, it’s good to see recognition of the contributions of funders, including our charities, to reduce administrative burden. We will continue to work closely with government to ensure revised processes are fit for the needs of funders, researchers, and patients.”
