First Ever MedTech Policy Aims to Improve Patient Access

7th February 2023

On the 3rd February this year a pioneering medical technology policy was released, meaning patients throughout the UK will soon have safe, efficient, and cutting-edge devices and technology made available to them on the NHS.

The strategy will concentrate on empowering patients to control their well-being on a daily basis from home.

Additionally, it outlines the actions that must be completed to guarantee access to cutting-edge technologies via the NHS. This can save time for professionals providing treatment and speed up both diagnosis and care.

The annual NHS expenditure on medical technology is £10bn, part of this consists of X-ray scanners, wheelchairs, and syringes.

This tactic will guarantee that the ideal offering is provided at the ideal cost and location, and aid in creating robust supply chains to make sure the UK is ready for any future health crisis.

Medical technology has the ability to accelerate diagnosis and bring enhanced methods of care to the table, which is why using it properly is essential for minimising treatment queues brought on by Covid 19.
