We’ve got an idea, what do we do next?

We’re particularly interested in hearing from companies that have innovative technologies not currently being used in the health sector but could have a positive impact on patient care and their overall experience.

We will then conduct an initial assessment of your product or service and provide advice on where the opportunities for your solution exist and the best people to connect with, drawing on our networks.

We have three support levels:

Level 1: This is normally when we receive an initial call and we capture information and provide initial feedback. Potentially we will make introductions to appropriate healthcare partners to see whether the offering is of interest to them. We will also put ideas on file for future opportunities and funding calls as well as signpost businesses to our Funding Finder, Enterprise Newsletter and HI Channel.

Level 2: This is reached when we feel discussions are bilateral and likely to result in new partnerships with our healthcare providers in the West of England. At this stage we provide more in-depth assistance around funding and set up face-to-face introductions with our healthcare partners. We will also provide more formal feedback on the innovation being put forward.

Levels 3: At these levels agreement has been reached and contracts/partnership agreements are in place or being negotiated. We provide ongoing support for new partnerships as they progress.
