Former UK health minister Lord James O’Shaughnessy

UK ini­ti­ates re­view of clin­i­cal tri­als af­ter de­creas­es in re­cruit­ment, num­ber of stud­ies

The UK’s once-strong clin­i­cal re­search land­scape has been shrink­ing over the past five years, prompt­ing the gov­ern­ment to open an in­ves­ti­ga­tion in­to what can be done to sal­vage and re­build.

The UK has ap­point­ed for­mer health min­is­ter James O’Shaugh­nessy to re­view the state of com­mer­cial clin­i­cal tri­als in the coun­try and make rec­om­men­da­tions based on his find­ings. The rec­om­men­da­tions are ex­pect­ed to be pub­lished this spring and will in­clude how to im­prove and in­crease clin­i­cal tri­als in 2023 and fu­ture years.
