Healthcare UK launched to sell NHS expertise abroad

The gateway to international customers for the NHS has been launched, with Healthcare UK.

Working together, the Department of Health, NHS Commissioning Board and UK Trade and Investment, will boost the value of UK’s trade in healthcare products and services.

Healthcare UK will draw on the in-depth knowledge of the UK’s healthcare products and services whilst utilising UKTI’s network of professional advisers in nearly 100 countries. It will provide a single gateway to the UK’s healthcare capabilities, both private and public.

The organisation will run campaigns to boost the UK’s profile in healthcare, identify the biggest international opportunities and facilitate formation of consortia of UK organisations to provide complete solutions to major healthcare challenges.

Health minister Lord Howe said: “The UK is a world leader in healthcare, with unrivalled experience and expertise in meeting the health needs of a diverse population.

“Healthcare UK is good news for the UK economy which will benefit from the extra jobs and revenue created by our highly successful healthcare industries as they trade more across the globe. It also means more money for the NHS across the UK.”
