Greater Manchester has the unique ability to deliver innovation into frontline care at pace and scale thanks to £6bn devolved health and social care system, unrivalled digital assets and ambitions, exceptional academic and research capability and infrastructure and thriving industry partnerships.
Health Innovation Manchester is harnessing the assets of our world-leading researchers, fostering partnerships with industry, academia and other government organisations and supporting our NHS and social care providers to adopt innovation, such as through digital technology, changes to practice or optimising medication. Their vision is to be a recognised international leader in accelerating innovation that transforms citizens’ health and wellbeing.
This event will explore Greater Manchester’s footprint (including Cheshire East) research assets, the Greater Manchester Research Hub, the GM Universities, the national R&D facility for targeted medicines, diagnostics, and biomarkers and the NHS infrastructure available to support Research and Innovation in the region.
Information will be available as to the support Health Innovation Manchester, some NHS Trusts, Medicine Discovery Catapult and Universities within the Greater Manchester footprint can offer to businesses who are on the journey of developing products to the healthcare market.
This is also an opportunity for businesses across the region to meet and question senior staff from the NHS and Universities about our workplans. NHS advisors from Health Innovation Manchester will explain how to work, collaborate and develop products with the NHS more effectively.
Health Innovation Manchester can also offer fully funded / free Business Support to SMEs to help with the adoption of innovative products/services into the NHS.
