A series of workshops is on offer to North West Coast businesses with products aimed at health and care organisations.

‘Excel in Health’ offers eight one-hour educational sessions to help businesses understand how to work with the NHS.

The sessions are free to small businesses in Cheshire, Merseyside and Lancashire; they are organised by the Innovation Agency, which is part of the NHS and funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to deliver a business support programme, called Health Matters.

Topics covered include procurement and commissioning in the NHS; developing a business case; real world validation; and how to pitch to the NHS.

There are two date options for each session, which take place between 13 January and the end of April.
