The ABPI has responded to the General Election result welcoming the news and saying that it is looking forward to working with the new Government to make the UK the best place in the world to research, develop and use the medicines of the future.
In response to the election result, ABPI Chief Executive Mike Thompson said: “Congratulations to the Prime Minister on his return to office. The Prime Minister was elected with a manifesto which included strong commitments to improve the availability of new medicines to NHS patients, the uptake of vaccines, and to place life sciences at the centre of an innovation based economy.
“The ABPI supports these ambitions and we look forward to working with our members to bring new investment to the UK to further strengthen our world-leading science base.
“The Prime Minister’s Brexit deal includes an important commitment to exploring close cooperation on medicine regulation. Achieving this will be important in prioritising patients and public health as well as the future of the UK life sciences sector.”
