The important role clinical studies play in shaping the future of medicine has also made the political agenda. Last summer, Health Secretary Alan Johnson told a Downing Street summit that as many patients as possible will ‘have the opportunity to be part of medical research that will transform the healthcare and wellbeing of the population’.
He discussed new plans which had the objective of ensuring that patients, from every part of the country, with any illness or disease, are made aware of research that is of particular relevance to them. However, in reality, how many of us, both before and since Mr Johnson’s speech, have been given the opportunity to participate? Synexus belives the answer is most likely to be very few.
