The Northern Powerhouse, which includes the cities of Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Sheffield, Hull and Newcastle, accounts for a large proportion of UK life sciences exports with more than 1,000 life sciences and healthcare businesses. This makes up one of the largest life sciences clusters in Europe with a combined turnover of £10.8 billion. Due to its importance in the Northern Powerhouse, we are supporting businesses from the Health and Life Sciences industry as part of the levelling up agenda.

We are pleased to be hosting some exciting events over the coming months, including a must-attend Regulatory Symposium featuring 10 key industry speakers over two days, an International Market Programme focusing on doing business in specific regions and a full-day event focusing on the impact of the EU transition and considerations for the sector.

See our events programme below and book your place for the upcoming Regulatory Symposium. We will be adding more events as they are confirmed.

Regulatory Symposium

The changes being made to the Medical Device Regulations (MDR) and Medical Device Directive (MDD) affect all Health and Life Sciences companies, presenting a challenge for businesses across the region.

 

Examples of changes affecting MDR that companies will need to be aware of include:

  • Vigilance and Post market Surveillance
  • Role of Economic Operators and Person Responsible for Regulatory Compliance
  • Scope and Classification of Product
  • Changes affecting Notified Bodies
  • Unique Device Identification (UDI)/ Implant Card
  • Summary of Safety and Clinical Performance
  • Clinical Evaluation / Post market Clinical Follow-up, Clinical Investigations

 

To prepare you and your business, we are bringing together 10 renowned specialists in their disciplines to guide you through the changes and provide answers to the key questions in this two-day event.
