The Innovation Nexus
What we do
The Health Innovation Manchester team of advisors brings together expertise across all aspects of working with the NHS, from trials, evaluation and market needs analysis to procurement and adoption. If you are a business with an innovative product, service or technology that you believe has the potential to benefit the NHS, our team will be delighted to hear about your innovation and will provide bespoke advice on the steps you should be taking to progress your innovation and engage with the NHS.
Health Innovation Manchester provides a dedicated procurement specialist to provide advice and support to SMEs and innovators on NHS procurement.
As part of the AHSN Network, Health Innovation Manchester supports the regional “import and export of healthcare innovation through our Innovation Exchange. The Innovation Exchange is an AHSN coordinated approach to identify, select and support the adoption of innovations that improve our economy and patients’ lives.
Innovation Nexus and COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
Due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation, Health Innovation Manchester in line with guidance from its funders and commissioners, is pivoting its activities to focus solely on supporting the current crisis.
This means that all services including the support to Industry via the Innovation Nexus business support team will be directed to supporting companies and innovators that are working on COVID-19 related products and services.
If you have an enquiry regarding a product or an innovation that is directly e.g. diagnostic, infection control, PPE, or indirectly e.g. remote monitoring of vulnerable patients/citizens, please submit your enquiry as normal.
Any enquiries we receive that are not Coronavirus related will be recorded and “warehoused” for follow up action once the current crisis has passed.
