Does your business have an ambition to sell its products and services to the NHS?

Or maybe you haven’t considered the NHS as a target market for growth before?

Although the NHS is a clinical organisation, there are loads of non-medical products and services being procured, including:

  • cleaning
  • construction
  • stationery
  • linen suppliers
  • food and beverages
  • temporary staff

Lancashire Business View has partnered up with the Innovation Agency, an NHS organisation whose job it is to support SMEs in doing business with the NHS, to hold a roundtable event on 12 February.
