Our business support service provides you with assistance to explore the different steps you can take to further develop your innovative ideas.
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 business proposition, such as an innovative 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 and resources.
We can provide you with information on our three levels of business support, which describes the process we use to help you with developing your ideas. We can also provide information on our Regional Enterprise work & opportunities, including working with other local organisations and keeping up to date with the initiatives.
We have created our Health Innovation Channel (HI Channel) which gives companies a new way of reaching out to our network of NHS Trusts, clinicians, commissioners, universities and other companies to tell them about new and novel technologies that are near market or market ready.
