Services for the NHS


We work with NHS organisations and their employees to help bring their valuable ideas to life.

Medipex was set up by six NHS Trusts in 2004 to provide advice to any NHS Trust on identification, protection and commercialisation of intellectual property (IP). It is an independent not for profit company limited by guarantee and works with the NHS through a membership model renewable annually or as a fee for service.

Membership of Medipex offers NHS Organisations in the Yorkshire and East Midlands regions significant benefits. Our proven model of innovation management will help you recognise, value and develop your ideas into new products and services and launch them into the market.

Our services include:

• Innovation identification and evaluation

• Verification of clinical need

• On tap advice on IP protection

• Assistance with IP and commercialisation aspects of grant applications

• Advice on contractual arrangements for IP and collaboration agreements

• Advice on project planning and regulatory requirements

• Identification of prototyping and manufacturing providers

• Identification of commercial partners and investors for product development and commercialisation

• Evidence base and business case development

• Management of collaborations between NHS, industry and universities

• Membership of the Innovation Champion Network and associated training

NHS Trust members benefit from a dedicated project manager to ensure our service is completely aligned with your strategy and priorities.

If you work in the NHS and you have an idea we might help you develop, call us now on 0113 397 0830 or email us.
