We want to engage with small and medium sized businesses operating in the health and life sciences market.
Wessex AHSN can offer unprecedented access to the NHS, universities and other businesses and key stakeholders in our geography. This can help you validate your ideas and approach, and identify other partnership opportunities including product co-creation opportunities and setting up clinical trials. We are also seeking to reduce some of the barriers to dealing with the NHS such as the complexity around procurement and navigating the system itself.
NHS England granted us our licence in August 2013, and we are making rapid progress by building strong relationships with our regional healthcare partners, scientific and academic communities, and industry partners.
To progress this, we have developed an industry support infrastructure to include networking, events, a strategic partnership with the SETsquared Partnership (Europe’s leading university business incubator), and other membership-type services.
Access to finance is a challenge that almost all small and medium businesses face. Wessex AHSN can help you navigate the funding landscape. We have recently launched our own Investment Fund of £250,000 to accelerate the growth of the health and life science companies in our region, with particular preference given to businesses operating in our priority areas.
The adoption of the right cost-saving innovations will improve the efficiency and productivity of the NHS. Wessex AHSN is keen to identify and assist with the spread of the right innovation for the benefit of the health service and the overall economy.
