Anne Marie Morris MP

Chair of the Parliamentary Group on Access to Medicines and Medical Devices

Anne Marie Morris is the Member of Parliament for Newton Abbot, elected in 2010. Anne Marie is the Founder and Chairman of the Parliamentary Group on Access to Medicines and Medical Devices, a group which seeks to examine pricing, funding and wider access issues relating to the availability of medicines and medical technologies on the NHS in England. The APPG’s most recent inquiries have looked at NICE’s methodology as part of its own review, and the impact of Brexit on the Life Sciences Industry. The Group is currently leading inquiries into the future of international regulation in the sector post Covid and the sustainability and resilience of the access pathway. Anne Marie also founded and continues to chair the Parliamentary Group on Rural Health and Social Care, a group which seeks to develop policy recommendations for the government on rural health and social care issues. The APPG is currently holding a 2-year inquiry. The rural agenda is recognised by government as an area of key focus, reinforced by the Covid experience. Prior to her parliamentary career, Anne Marie was a corporate finance lawyer working in the city of London for Norton Rose and Alan & Overy and then in the Far East (working in asset finance). Following her MBA she became Marketing Director across EMEA for PricewaterhouseCoopers and then Global Marketing Director/Partner Ernst&Young and then Linklaters.
