Innovative Health Working Group

James& Katie-17

What we do:

The Innovative Health Working Group (IHWG) is a cross-sector network whose membership consists of practitioners from universities, local authorities, businesses and voluntary organisations from across the West Midlands.

Meeting on a quarterly basis, the group works on topics such as healthy ageing, digital health solutions, medical devices, translational medicine and education in health technologies, and also explores and creates opportunities for new and existing healthcare markets. Members also work together to influence ways in which all sectors can collaborate to create the strategies, policies and operational ingredients needed to maximise health outcomes and impacts for all.

Chair: Bethan Bishop, Director of Partnerships at Aliciyo Ltd
