Our market entry and expansion service provides support to companies and organisations with innovations in healthcare who are looking to expand sales to the NHS or public health markets. This is how we can help:

Introduction to NHS Business Cases

When a group within the NHS is interested in taking on board a new product or service then it is very likely that a NHS Business Case will need to be prepared and approved to confirm the case for change before procurement of the innovation can proceed. As the supplier of the innovation you are in a key position to contribute to the development of a strong case for change. This pdfIntroduction to NHS Business Cases provides an overview of typical NHS Provider Trust and Commissioner business cases, as well as advice on how you can provide information and input to assist in the preparation of a successful business case.

Selling to the NHS advice and seminars

These events are an opportunity to hear from commissioners and buyers within NHS and public health organisations about what they are looking for when assessing innovative products and services. An overview of the complex UK healthcare and related research infrastructure is also provided and there are opportunities for you to ask questions of the experts present. One to one sessions with one of the EMAHSN commercial team are also available at the events.
