Collaborating with organisations across health and technology sectors.
Uniquely Connected with the NHS
At Health Enterprise East we believe in improving healthcare through technology and innovation. To be successful in this, we collaborate with a number of organisations across the health and technology sectors. These partnerships are vital to ensure we remain uniquely connected with the NHS, medical technology industry and governmental organisations, and can provide our clients with the specialist advice and support they need to address their challenges across the innovation pathway.

In addition Health Enterprise East has partnered with the University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust, to provide medtech companies with access to the combined expertise of HEE’s MedTech CONSULTING services plus specialist commercial and clinical advisory services from UHS to support the development, evaluation and adoption of innovation products.
