At that meeting it was agreed that National Voices would coordinate a joint paper to the Office for Life Sciences summarising key themes for the implementation of the Accelerated Access Review and the forthcoming Life Sciences Strategy.

The paper covers overarching matters of access and innovation, priorities for the proposed Accelerated Access Partnership, and mechanisms for the representation of the views of patients on the Accelerated Access Partnership

Involving patients and citizens: I Statements for research and innovation

The Accelerated Access Review was established to speed up access to innovative products for NHS patients. National Voices was invited to provide advice on how patients and citizens should be involved, and Hilary Newiss, chair of National Voices, acted as patient champion in the review.

As part of the Accelerated Access review, National Voices published ‘Involving patients and citizens: I statements for research and innovation.’ The document sets out patient and citizen expectations, and can be used by those involved in research and innovation to help meet these expectations. They set a standard for what ‘good’ looks and feels like.
