By working in partnership with TRUSTECH on our Dragons’ Den and Innovation Evaluation programmes, we identified and assessed innovative medtech that has the potential to deliver better quality care and more efficient services to our patients and citizens.

Denis Gizzi

Managing Director (former), NHS Oldham Clinical Commissioning Group

We relocated to the TRUSTECH managed MedTECH Centre in 2012 as part of our plan to scale up our business and engage with the regional NHS. With TRUSTECH’s support and advice, we established strong links with the NHS ecosystem, which enabled us to gain invaluable insight into the NHS procurement process and ultimately led to our innovative cervical cancer diagnostic being adopted by several NHS hospitals.

This remains the core of what we do, however we have broadened the range of services we provide to the NHS and expanded to assist any health and social care innovators, including companies, the public sector and universities.
