Access to clinical expertise is an essential part of the product development process for medical devices and pharmaceuticals.

We work very closely with the NHS and Health Boards, and many of the clinical research departments are active members of MediWales. Access to clinical expertise is an essential part of the product development process for medical devices and pharmaceuticals, and supporting clinical innovation is a high priority for MediWales. We collaborate regularly with the NHS, and academic and research groups to facilitate industry access to appropriate clinical expertise.

MediWales has launched a series of clinical unmet needs events in collaboration with Health and Care Research Wales and The Bill Mapleson Centre to help improve clinical innovation. Looking ahead, we aim to provide even more opportunities for industry and the clinical community to engage and collaborate, working to produce a change in the quantity, quality and speed of health and social care innovations across Wales. Our forthcoming event schedule will focus on clinical innovation, and our on-going collaboration with health boards in Wales will allow new partnerships to form and increase clinical access.

For the past five years, through our Life Science Expert Advisory Group (LSEAG), MediWales has worked closely with Health and Care Research Wales, the Welsh NHS, and academics to improve the life science industry’s access to appropriate clinical expertise in Wales. Health and Care Research Wales provides companies wishing to undertake clinical trials and product evaluations in Wales with a resource for information and support.

The Bill Mapleson Centre is a medical innovation business that collaborates extensively with the NHS and industry in developing innovative solutions to clinical problems, and successfully attract major innovation funding. They offer clinical and academic advice to industry during the development of novel products.
