“While no longer falling, the UK’s position in global clinical trial rankings remains unchanged from last year’s report. The UK came fourth for the number of phase 1 trials (79), sixth for phase two (150), and tenth for the largest and most crucial phase three trials (182), which provide the NHS with the highest income, while also providing the most patents with free cutting edge medication.”
