Against an external environment of political turmoil and health systems struggling to cope with rising demands, PHG Foundation remains committed to solutions that include effective use of modern technologies to deliver high quality and efficient medicine reaching all citizens.
Our review of 2016 shows we have fulfilled many of our aspirations from last year, whether launching our All Party Parliamentary Group on Personalised Healthcare, which has created a powerful platform for strengthening our place at the centre of policy making around personalised healthcare or bringing complexities of sharing genetic data to the attention of the National Data Guardian. And we have been looking ahead - to the next technologies beyond genomics and the changes in society needed to make the most out of them.
As always our work depends on our insightful multidisciplinary team and the support of colleagues and stakeholders in the UK and worldwide who generously share their knowledge and expertise. Sincere thanks to them all.
