Around 100 UK healthcare providers participated in seminars on overseas business opportunities organised by Healthcare UK as part of NHS Englands Health and Care Innovation Expo.

In 2014/15, 13 billion of opportunities have been identified across Healthcare UKs 10 priority markets. Healthcare UK works with UKTIs overseas network to identify high value opportunities with an accessible value of over 250 million for UK organisations (representing a cumulative total of contract values rather than a single contract).

Since Healthcare UK was established in 2013, it has assisted UK organisations to win healthcare contracts worth more than 3 billion.

Discussions with Healthcare UK experts covered opportunities in:

  • Saudi Arabia
  • Turkey
  • South East Asia
  • China

Participants heard directly from Mexicos Vice Minister of Health and the Health Minister from New Delhis regional government the potential for partnership with NHS organisations in their countries.
