NHS Navigation Days, Masterclasses, and 1-2-1 Clinics for HealthTech SMEs in London


Free support is being offered by Barts Life Sciences for small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and innovators that are active or registered in London. The support brings in expertise on topics including developing NHS business cases, procurement, intellectual property, and health economics, with the aim of supporting scaling innovation alongside the NHS. Tailored guidance will also be offered to life sciences enterprises, with ‘NHS Navigation Days’, ‘Masterclasses’, and ‘1-2-1 Clinics’ – all offered at no cost to eligible SMEs.


NHS Navigation Days are designed to support SMEs with their understanding of the NHS landscape, whilst the smaller-scale Masterclasses and 1-2-1 Clinics go into more depth on specific topics and provide bespoke support.


Dr Sarah Fothergill, the HealthTech Lead at Barts Life Sciences said: “London has a vibrant and ever-growing life sciences innovation landscape, and we want to ensure that NHS staff, patients and our communities benefit from promising future innovations. This project starts with ensuring future HealthTech develops with Barts Health NHS Trust needs and the wider NHS in mind”.
