About SBRI Healthcare:
The Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) Healthcare is an NHS England funded initiative which aims to help develop solutions that address unmet health needs in order to improve patients’ lives and support NHS efficiency.
Each year SBRI Healthcare provides funding to innovative new products and services with the potential to improve patient outcomes and delivery of health services within specific health challenges.
Competitions are open to single companies or organisations from the private, public and third sectors, including charities.
The SBRI scheme is particularly suited to small and medium-sized businesses, as the contracts are of relatively small value and operate on short timescales for Government departments. In addition, it is an opportunity for new companies to engage a public sector customer pre-procurement.
