Over the past three years, this collaboration – ‘MedTech London’ – has responded to the sector’s growth needs through providing networking opportunities, support in accessing the market (for example, through Innovation Surgeries on how to access the NHS) and training workshops (such as on cost-benefit analysis). 

MedTech London, funded primarily by the GLA, aims to help London realise its potential in health technology for the economic benefit of London, its companies and the health benefits of its population. 

The foundations of this endeavour are the health technology companies, particularly the Small and Medium – sized Enterprises (SMEs – companies with fewer than 250 employees) and the need to enable greater collaboration across the sector to spur further innovation and bring new products and services to market.
