About Medipex


Medipex is a healthcare innovation hub which works with the NHS, Industry and Academia with the aim of improving patient care through accelerating knowledge transfer and providing market access solutions.

Medipex was originally set up in 2002 as the NHS Innovation Hub for the Yorkshire and Humber region, providing a range of services to NHS organisations to help them identify, protect and commercialise Intellectual Property owned by them through the work of their employees. 

Since 2002, Medipex has brought in over £500,000 in income for NHS organisations through its IP commercialisation activities, captured an IP pipeline with a market value of over £500 million on behalf of its member NHS organisations (which would otherwise have been lost), directly levered in over £5 million in venture capital investment into spin-out companies, created 6 jobs and levered in over £20 million in R&D grants.
