We recognise that new ideas and innovations can be commercially sensitive and that it is important to protect them.

We provide an Intellectual Property (IP) advice service to NHS innovators to help manage existing IP rights and advise of commercial matters. If you are an NHS innovator with a healthcare product, system or way of working that has an element of unique IP then get in touch with our commercial team to discuss further.

You may also find the Intellectual Property Office website a great place to start. It provides advice and guidance on all forms of IP and how to apply for protection or you may be interested in attending Medilink Professional Development (MPD) legal workshops. Check out Medilink East Midlands events to view the next workshop.
