Six-month-old Cluster has its formal launch

On 24 September, the West Midlands Health Technologies Cluster will hold its formal launch at the University of Warwick.

Fittingly, the launch will be held at a conference about the UK’s diagnostics sector.

Executive Chair, David Kidney says the Cluster has come of age very quickly:

“The West Midlands Health Technologies Cluster is already a strong and dynamic alliance of regional businesses. Their health technologies products and services cover medical devices, digital services, data systems – and diagnostics. We have great buy-in also from professional services, Universities and the NHS.

“We have been determined to work collaboratively with other organisations which offer business support services. This has earned us a reputation as an effective team player, able to work strategically with others for the benefit of our region.”

The Cluster’s launch will take place midway through a conference “Building a Sustainable UK Diagnostic Sector: Meeting the Challenge” jointly hosted by The Cluster, University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire, and the University of Warwick.

The launch will feature a presentation by Executive Chair, David Kidney, a speech from Henriette Lyttle-Breukelaar, Director of Economic Strategy for the Greater Birmingham & Solihull LEP, and a presentation by Lisa Page of law firm Penningtons Manches Cooper LLP.
