Companies, especially SMEs, can face significant challenges to introduce their new and innovative products to the NHS. The complexity of procurement, patient safety and a risk averse culture can be daunting.
Health Innovation Manchester’s Innovation Nexus service is
delivered by TRUSTECH. It enables the life sciences industry to
engage with academic and clinical specialists to advance their
knowledge and understanding of NHS needs and procurement
processes. Innovation Nexus also facilitates the award of Health Innovation Manchester’s Innovation Funds. To date, this programme has awarded nearly £1 million to SMEs to assist with the development and implementation of needs-led, evidence-based innovations into the Greater Manchester health system.
