The UK is one of the largest digital health markets in Europe. By international comparison, the UK digital health and care sector presents as a well-developed and competitive market that hosts numerous leading technology companies. Health and care digital maturity across many parts of the UK may be considered comparable to Finland. However, there are e.g. regional differences regarding digital maturity, hence there are good opportunities for the Finnish digital health and care companies to enter the market.   

There is a clear business growth in digital solutions in general and in life sciences industries in particular, which has increased effectiveness and efficiency within the NHS. UK sees itself as well placed to grow and become a global hub within the health and social care sector. Finnish companies have successfully entered the UK digital health and care markets.  There is an interest within the UK in Nordic innovations, delivered in the right way for health and care customers. Also, the Finnish hospital knowhow is well respected in the UK. 

On this note, Business Finland is organizing a Team Finland visit to London on 15 – 17 October 2024. The visit is led by Ms. Päivi Sillanaukee, Special Envoy, Ministry of Social Affairs and Health. The visit will offer an opportunity to gain and increase market knowledge, to learn about partners and decision makers, and how to access the UK market. By participating in the trade mission, you can build and grow your own valuable network in the UK.

Who should attend?

This visit is tailored for Finnish health tech companies who already have established their operations in the UK or are interested in the UK and offer suitable technologies for the digital health & hospital market. 

This visit is organized if at least 10 companies sign up. Delegation size is limited to 12 companies, max two representatives per company on first come first served basis. 

To cover the expenses of arranging the program in London, Business Finland will charge a participation fee of: 

  • Major companies: 1500 EUR + VAT per person
  • SMEs and Micro businesses: 1275 EUR + VAT per person

The participation fee has been calculated based on 12 participants; should the number of attendees increase, the participant fee will be reduced accordingly.
