What are advanced therapies?
These medicines work by using and enhancing the body’s natural defence and repair mechanisms to address disease and tissue damage (cell therapies), or correcting the results of genetic defects (gene therapies).
Develop a strategic plan to ensure that research and innovation opportunities and current challenges for ATMPs are addressed in order to improve health, well-being and prosperity for the population of Wales.
Work in partnership to develop a workforce plan for ATMPs that reflects the evolution and emergence of new treatments.
Review current infrastructure, resources and facilities necessary for the delivery of ATMPs in Wales such as clinical trials delivery, general wards, and laboratory and pharmacy services.
Maximising opportunities to work with the public to facilitate co-production of services and to engage with decisions around commissioning, and the adoption or non-adoption of these treatments.
