JRO's Dr Nick McNally joins online debate

27 September 2012

Research support director Dr Nick McNally last week joined a panel of experts as part of a 2-hour live online Guardian debate on innovation in the NHS.

The debate was wide-ranging and provocative looking issues such as what holds up translation of research breakthroughs into innovations in patient care and the diffusion of new treatments and diagnostics.

Other panellists included Miles Ayling, director of innovation and service improvement at the Department of Health, and Dr Jonathan Sheffield OBE, chief executive of the NIHR Clinical Research Network.
