A TEAM set up to help firms benefit from lucrative healthcare opportunities has been given a welcome tonic – thousands of pounds in cash!

The NHS Innovations North team has taken on seven new staff to boost its numbers to 15, after receiving £520,000-worth of European Regional Development Fund support, to help small and medium-sized companies develop innovative new products for the NHS.

The team, based at RTC North in Sunderland, will be able to offer more specialist advice, covering the healthcare market, intellectual property (IP) protection and the commercialisation process, as well as the extensive NHS reforms.
