Innovation In Surgery
That this House supports the recommendations of the Royal College of Surgeons' report Overcoming barriers to innovation in surgery; notes that on average a person will have five surgical episodes in their lifetime and that surgery is one of the most effective treatments for cancer; further notes that less than two per cent of national funding for medical research is given to surgical projects; asks the Government and medical research charities to support the recommendations of the report, namely that providers of NHS services should be incentivised to support surgical trials, research modules should be incorporated into surgical training and that surgeons should have protected time to carry out research and be able to offer patients the opportunity to take part in clinical trials; and calls on the Department of Health and the surgical profession to explore how to disseminate the latest information on new techniques and technologies.
