Our impact

Like all cities and countries, Greater Manchester is facing significant public health challenges. This is against a backdrop of rising health and social care costs. At the same time, the challenges and barriers to introducing innovation into health and social care services at pace are global issues. Empowered by devolution, Greater Manchester is uniquely placed to tackle both of these challenges.

Health Innovation Manchester is transforming and differentiating the region by:

  • Positioning Greater Manchester as an internationally renowned location for life science, med-tech and digital healthcare research and innovation.
  • Accelerating the discovery, development and deployment of innovation that improves our population’s health and wellbeing.
  • Contributing to national and international health and life science policy.
