Are you interested in how to enter the UK market? The Embassy of Denmark in London is hosting a free UK market entry workshop in Copenhagen with focus on business and export opportunities within the assistive tech, elderly care and care tech sector the UK.

The UK have recently launched the first national strategy for Medical Technologies, showing a heightened interest for welfare, and assistive technologies. The strategy and the current NHS backlog have created a strengthened focus on the need and value provided by means of medical and assistive technologies. The national health system demand thus provides a unique opportunity to showcase and position innovative Danish solutions and strongholds.

This workshop will include presentations and Q&A-sessions on the opportunities on the UK market with representatives from patient associations, as well as individual guidance on Brexit regulation. Market Access experts will be answering your questions about export registration, the free trade agreement (TCA) and UKCA marking. Lastly, the programme will help prepare delegates to partake and meet byers, NHS trusts and care homes at our joint visit to the OTShow (Nov 22-23).

The workshop will leave you with a better understanding of how your products can address the needs of the British healthcare system and how to navigate some of the negative effects and uncertainties after Brexit.
