The UK has a strong medical devices industry base, employing nearly 50,000 people who are contributing to life-saving and enhancing technologies, improved patient care and reduced healthcare costs for the NHS.
Unlike the pharmaceutical industry, the medical devices industry is still young and is dominated by R&D led small-to-medium size specialist manufacturing companies that work closely with the UK’s centres of clinical excellence. Shorter product lifecycles fuelled by faster rates of innovation, combined with skill-sets that are easily transferrable and sought across other scientific disciplines, make talent retention a challenge.
