Paul Catchpole - Value and Access Director, The Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry

Paul Catchpole talks to ecancertv at the War On Cancer Meeting about how healthcare systems can prioritise different treatments.

He explains how the system has to be reformed. He argues that the amount that was spent on new treatments was unsustainable and that now many treatments are in limbo due to a lack of money that has meant that the doors have been closed to new applications.

This he argues is a "burning platform for change" which requires UK organisations such as NHS England, NICE and medicines evaluation to be more "joined up" in order to find a workable solution.
