What are the new personalised medicine proposals?
Details of the proposed Personalised Medicine Strategy have been presented to the NHS England board this September by Sir Bruce Keogh, the organisation’s National Medical Director.
Sir Bruce states that personalised medicine has the potential to improve patient outcomes and produce significant benefits for the NHS. He describes the concept as a move away from a “one size fits all” approach to the treatment and care of patients with a particular condition, to one which instead adopts a full range of approaches that are increasingly individualised to the needs of the particular patient. He explains that these may include emergent approaches in areas such as “diagnostic tests, functional genomic technologies, molecular pathway, data analytics and real time monitoring of conditions.”
