The NHS is opening up to health technology entrepreneurs – find out how

NHS England’s Tim Kelsey and Beverley Bryant are holding a morning event specifically for health technology start-up companies and small to medium enterprises (SMEs). Please note that this is a re-run of the event held in London on the 5th of July being held for those companies who missed out due to limited places.

The event will provide an opportunity to meet the NHS England team and find out how NHS England is supporting entrepreneurs including how organisations can get involved in future events and networking.

The event also offers the opportunity to meet other health technology entrepreneurs alongside organisations looking to work with innovative health technology SMEs and start-up companies.

There will be pitches from active networks, who are driving and nurturing innovation in health technology, as well as a briefing on the new Academic Health Science Networks and whether there will be funding for health technology innovations.

A virtual goody bag of free and discounted offers is available for all attendees.

Date: Wednesday 11 September 2013
Time: 9.30 am – 13.30 pm
Location: Park Plaza Hotel, Leeds

This free event is open to director-level SMEs and start-ups in health technology only.

Places are limited, sign up now by registering online here.

Please note that this is a re-run of the event held in London on the 5th of July. If you attended the event in London you may wish to recommend this event to a colleague rather than attending yourself.

We look forward to seeing you there.

    As I am unable to attend either event, are there any details of its attendees, content or discussion?
    I am a Business Analyst and am very interested in this area.

    • NHS England says:

      Hi Andrew,

      We will provide you with information shortly.

      Thank you.

      • NHS England says:

        We will publish the agenda for the session shortly. More SMEs are registering so the attendee list is changing but we will publish the list of attendees nearer to the day.

        Other events will be held so if people can’t make this one then they should look out for announcements on future dates.

        Kind Regards
