ABPI welcomes Labour's life sciences plan

The Labour party has today published its plan for life sciences, aimed at transforming how medical treatments are discovered and delivered. The strategy emphasises the need to encourage investment in the pharmaceutical sector.

In response, Richard Torbett, the ABPI's Chief Executive said:

“This strategy reflects the extensive and thoughtful engagement with stakeholders that the Labour party has undertaken.

"With its focus on the long term, practical measures to boost investment in research, and the emphasis on quality data to underpin future strategy, this plan will help our industry to deliver the cutting-edge treatments NHS patients need and deserve and help the UK to better compete on the global stage.”
