Description


Developing Medical Technology for the NHS

Companies often face difficulty in bringing their innovative products to market in the NHS because of the complexity of accessing healthcare market structures and ingrained established clinical practices and patient pathways.

Alder Hey Children's NHS Foundation Trust is hosting a intensive two-day workshop aimed at enabling eligible* Liverpool City Region region, and wider North West Coast, based Digital and Life Science companies to improve their understanding of the complex issues involved in seeing their products adopted within the NHS. Featuring speakers such as Alder Hey's Chief Executive, Louise Shepherd CBE, the workshop will provide key information and critical contacts and is the first step to a long term relationship with the Trust.

If your business is working in the medical technology, creative digital or life science industry and would like support to move into, or to grow within, the health and care sectors please register to attend here or email sophie.johnson@alderhey.nhs.uk for further information.

In addition, any Alder Hey staff interested in Med Tech and would like to explore opportunities to work in this area with Innovation, please join us.
