Connecting Medtech Product Developers with NHS Expertise
5th February 2015, St James’ Park, Newcastle upon Tyne

Scientists and clinicians in Newcastle joined forces on 5 February when they met with international businesses to seek out potential partnerships which will benefit healthcare. 

To foster relationships with companies specialising in medical technology, the NIHR DEC and Medical Physics teams met with business leaders and senior healthcare officials at the event.  The audience heard from speakers including Doris-Ann Williams, MBE, Chief Executive of the British In Vitro Diagnostics Association (BIVDA), and diagnostic companies Alere and OJ Bio Ltd.

The event, supported by AHSN NENC,  helped businesses to understand the range of services and expertise available to them.  Companies had the opportunity to meet some of the Region’s experts, from senior clinicians, scientists, engineers, medical physicists, managers and dedicated business support specialists.  It is hoped that by business engaging with the expert support that is available to them it will speed-up the process of getting their product to market.
