It’s difficult for innovators to reach patients as quickly as they’d like to, which can mean that patients don’t get the best outcomes as soon as they could and economic growth is stalled.
Equally it’s hard for the health and care system and researchers to engage and work with industry. By bringing these groups together and adding in the expertise of its partners, the HTA is able to catalyse success.


How do you ensure your products and services are relevant to NHS/citizen needs?


You know that new tech can help improve care, but where do you start?


How can research do more to shape healthcare innovation?


How can you help create healthcare tech that is designed around your needs and lifestyle?

This is what we do.

It’s impossible for individual players to come up with all the answers in isolation. We each need each other to succeed. This is why the HTA exists.

The HTA is a unique addition to the health and care sector in Surrey and Hampshire, accelerating economic growth in the M3 corridor and strengthening collaboration between industry, the public, health and care, and academia, leading to a healthier population and more productive, cost efficient health and care services.

It offers health tech industry innovators a unique mix of business support, and access to clinical expertise in an environment that enables them to speed up the development and deployment of solutions to meet citizen needs.

By enabling better alignment between clinical priorities and health tech development, the HTA will support new solutions to reach patients faster, a more efficient health and care system and increased economic growth.
