This first The London MedTech Directory & Review 2017 starts to identify who is in the sector, where they are and what they do. We encourage you to feed-back, correct and fill in any gaps. With your input, it be kept up to date on a monthly basis.

This directory also offers comment on particular sub-sectors which are emerging, and some thoughts for the future. We plan to release updated versions on an annual basis, keeping pace with the growth and strengthening of this exciting sector in London.
London’s MedTech sector is sizeable at nearly 200 firms and growing. In 2015, the Greater London Authority (GLA) collaborated with SEHTA and MedCity to identify who was in the cluster, and what support they needed to grow. This collaboration – ‘MedTech London’ – has responded to the sector’s growth needs through providing networking opportunities, support in accessing the market (for example, through Innovation Surgeries on how to access the NHS) and training workshops (such as on cost-benefit analysis). MedTech London, funded primarily by the GLA, aims to help London realise its potential in health technology for the economic benefit of London, its companies and the health benefits of its population. The foundations of this endeavour are the health technology companies, particularly the Small and Medium – sized Enterprises (SMEs – companies with fewer than 250 employees) and the need to enable greater collaboration across the sector to spur further innovation and bring new products and services to market.
