  • This is the Choluteca bridge in HondurasThis is a metaphor for the NHS – what it was once designed for perhaps no longer what it has to contend with – unprecedented change and demands on the systemPerhaps therefore the time for partnership working has never been greater

IHW - Accelerating adoption and diffusion in the NHS• Innovation, Health andWealth report waspublished on 5thDecember 2011• ABPI warmly welcomedthe report as asignificant step forwardto support adoption anddiffusion of innovativemedicines across theNHS“..simply doing more of what we have alwaysdone is no longer an option. We need to dothings differently. We need to radicallytransform the way we deliver services.” SirDavid Nicholson, Chief Executive of theNHS in England. (p4)“We need to create a system forinnovation that continuallyscans for new ideas, and takesthem through to widespreaduse. In order to do this we mustwork with industry, academia,staff and patients, to set anagenda for change anddelivery.”

    5. 5. Both the NHS and pharma have their challenges….• The famously quoted “Nicholson challenge” actually dates back to a McKinsey reportin 2009 that explored the efficiency savings possible if the NHS budget had zerogrowth. So as e.g. life expectancy increases, we have more frail elderly, we use moretechnology – the spend would be expected to increase ~5%/ annum, as in previousyears. But this is no longer the case – hence the £20bn figure - and £50bn in futureyears http://tinyurl.com/cajfc83• Care scandals – Mid Staffs, Winterbourne and many others – Don Bewick, the nationalquality „tsar‟ calling this “the normalisation of deviance”. So quality needs todramatically improve while budgets shrink – and we have just had an NHSreorganisation that‟s “so big, you can see it from space”• As for pharma – are the days of blockbusters over? R&D is getting harder, developmentis often through acquisition and industry is a global business. Other issues includepatent expiry, changing business models, biotech companies – we work in a rapidlyshifting environment
