Improving Outcomes through Personalised Medicine

Posted on 23 September 2016 (Permalink)

Personalised medicine is transforming healthcare across the world – a healthcare revolution driven by scientific and technical advances that is enhancing our ability to more precisely diagnose illnesses and target treatment of disease.

These advances are an intrinsic part of delivering the NHS Five Year Forward View and the NHS has the potential to become the first health service in the world to truly embrace personalised medicine across routine care.

NHS England launched Improving Outcomes through Personalised Medicine at NHS Expo earlier this month. It sets out what is meant by personalised medicine, now and in the future, and the approach that NHS England will take, working with partners, so that we can embrace new approaches, while ensuring that ethical, equality and economic implications are fully understood and addressed. These developments are being led within NHS England by Professor Sue Hill, Chief Scientific Officer for England.
