Mr Andrew Powsey I’ve often thought that the search for new drugs is too important to be left to big pharmaceutical companies who are only out to make a profit. In the UK a government agency should be set up to discover new drugs according to need, not profit. Think about it. No more exorbitant fees for drugs still in patent, thus releasing more funds for the NHS.

Elizabeth Theiss Exactly! Academia has an important role to play here too. Instead of working for drug companies, academics could partner with health agencies.
