Innovation in healthcare delivers wellbeing on many fronts; not only the societal and financial benefits of a healthier population, but also growth unleashed from a flourishing Life Science industry. In principal the UK should be highly successful, with research in Biomedical Sciences amongst the best in the world and a strong pharmaceutical history. But the reality is that UK has punched well below its weight in transforming breakthrough ideas into medicines and health care. The opportunity loss cannot be overstated. The Government’s Strategy for UK Life Sciences announced this week was therefore eagerly awaited and did not disappoint.
