Mission Statement

Medipex provides an impartial bridge between NHS, Academia and Industry. We build networks and partnerships with our customers, allowing them to realise the full potential of their ideas, with the aim of making a significant and positive impact on health and the economy, nationally.

Our service

Our knowledge of the NHS and experience in commercialising new medical technologies is vital in accessing the NHS. Through this we provide a complete service - from initial idea to adoption.

Our core values

Business excellence

We only work with organisations and individuals who share our business ethos and standards. Our staff are trained to deliver a first class service and we maintain this by actively seeking customer feedback and act on it accordingly.


We will endeavour to ensure our services are proficient, cost effective and customer-focussed.


We will treat all our customers and suppliers alike in an honest, transparent and impartial manner.

We’ve been working successfully with a wide range of NHS organisations since 2004, providing services to manage their intellectual property portfolios.

We’ve also been working with a wide range of medical technology companies since 2009, helping companies from across the UK and overseas to develop, trial and commercialise innovative products in the NHS.

We work with our three main customer groups: NHS staff, healthcare businesses and universities to help bring their healthcare ideas to market.

“The support I’ve had from Medipex has been really helpful. They’ve provided a cornerstone for the project to be built around.”
