Invest in Manchester

Digital Health

  1. Manchester is where the first stored program computer was created and today is a global tech hub with organisations such as GCHQ, Google and Amazon already based here. This emerging digital infrastructure means that Manchester is uniquely placed to work collaboratively with companies looking to innovate and optimise healthcare.

    The Salford Royal NHS foundation was the first fully e-enabled NHS trust in England and is now a global NHS digital exemplar providing healthcare companies with access to a wealth of de-personalised patient data for big clinical trials such as The Salford Lung Study; and The Christie hospital introduced the UK’s first proton beam therapy centre to advance the treatment of cancer.

    Manchester is home to a host of digital and tech incubators which all provide coworking spaces and accelerator programmes to support scaling from disruptive tech to sustainable business, including Bruntwood SciTech's Tech Incubator at Circle Square, their accelerator at Manchester Science Partnership - Mi-Idea and The Landing, employing highly advanced capabilities such as AR and VR facilities which support digital delivery services for health and social care

    Manchester nurtures small innovative companies such as e-Lucid and provides large established organisations such as Allscripts and TeleMedicine Healthcare the right opportunities to prosper here.

    MIDAS, Greater Manchester’s inward investment agency, helps businesses connect with local expertise, as well as the city’s pioneering universities, enabling them to establish a foothold in a leading destination for Digital Health.  


    Why Manchester?

    Manchester has ambitious plans to create ‘Digital First’ channels for health and social care services. Projects such as Safe Steps and Smart Hearts use remote apps and devices to devise individualised care plans, detect early deterioration and prevent hospital admissions.

    Home to leading digital cyber security companies like GCHQ, Raytheon and Secarma and The Greater Manchester Cyber Resilience Centre, Manchester also offers the perfect cyber security framework to protect sensitive health data.
