The commercial opportunities and challenges of doing business with the NHS

Does your business have an ambition to sell its products and services to the NHS? Or maybe you haven’t considered the NHS as a target market for growth before?

Although the NHS is a clinical organisation, there are loads of non-medical products and services being procured, including:

  • cleaning
  • construction
  • stationery
  • linen suppliers
  • food and beverages
  • temp staff

Lancashire Business View have partnered up with the Innovation Agency an NHS organisation whose job it is to support SMEs in doing business with the NHS, to hold a roundtable event on 12 February. The two panels will describe the opportunities and priorities facing the NHS and the challenge of doing business within the health care service. Please see below panellists for this event:
