Innovation surgeries

Do you have a new product or piece of tech ready for the NHS to adopt? Do you need help understanding NHS finances? Could you do with someone guiding you through the healthcare maze?

The UCLPartners innovation surgeries could be the answer! If your product, treatment or tech is near to market, we want to help you get it in the hands of healthcare professionals, and patients, as soon as possible.
