Our region is a leading national and international health and life sciences cluster, home to a rich and diverse community of innovators, entrepreneurs and researchers. Through our commission from the Office for Life Sciences (OLS) we have accelerated health and economic gains by fostering long-term partnerships with industry and a culture of innovation in the NHS.
Through real world evaluation we help to build evidence for high impact innovations that can address current and future health and social care needs. We work with the other health innovation networks across England to identify needs, provide advice, support adoption and spread, and the optimisation of patient pathways.
In a 2022/23 survey companies we have worked with told us we helped them to:
- safeguard and create 39 jobs
- raise almost £17 million in revenue
- secure more than £5 million in public investment
