Putting innovation at the heart of public services

We all know that our public services are under pressure as we face the twin facts of constrained public finances and an ageing society. The only way we are going to continue to have a world-beating health service, education system and infrastructure is by embracing innovation.
 
That’s why I was delighted to speak at the recent Reform health conference on the topic of ‘Innovation and the life sciences agenda’.
 
I spoke about the fact that patients are key to the new model of research. And that, in the NHS, the patient and clinical voice is the voice that matters. I also talked about how technology can drive three revolutions, of transparency, research and patient empowerment. Having served as Government Life Science Advisor, and co-founded the Patients4Data campaign, this is an area I feel passionately about. There is a new world of 21st-century medicine out there which can transform the way we think about health.
 
Fundamentally, innovation at the heart of our health service can ensure that the NHS makes us rather than breaks us.
