Purpose

How can the UK better use innovative science and technology for more personalised, innovative and sustainable healthcare?

Rapid advances in genomics, bioscience and technology offer expanding opportunities for medicine, alongside an increasing desire to centre individuals in increasingly personalised healthcare. Together, these developments call for faster and more effective translation of useful innovations into the NHS for better disease prediction, prevention and care – but the movement from ideas and research into health and care is often frustratingly slow.

The APPG on Personalised Medicine provides a forum to explore new and exciting innovations for health, and the complexities of NHS uptake, in an effort to identify solutions. The Group helps to accelerate the health benefits of national investment and excellence in genomics and biomedical science.

This APPG is designed to:

  1. Examine the potential of new and emerging scientific research and technologies to shape and improve future healthcare
  2. Ensure that the fruits of investment and innovation in genomics and the life sciences are adopted in the NHS for the benefit of patients and the wider public
  3. Support the development of a sustainable health service for the 21st century and beyond by realising the transformative power of personalised medicine driven by bioscience and technology
Work programme

The work programme for the coming year in the new Parliament will be confirmed in early 2020
