Medical Tech to the ‘rescue’

NICE Scientific Advice has launched a competition for SMEs, charities & academic research groups, who are developing transformative products that have the potential to change patients’ lives and/or save the NHS money.

The NICE AdviSeME Prize is open to products (pharmaceuticals, devices, diagnostic test/tools, cell/gene therapies, healthcare apps) in the early clinical stages of development. To be considered the technologies should demonstrate clinical credibility and target a population with a high unmet clinical need.   Closing date for applications is 13 October 2017

In addition they need to have a potential beneficial impact on either:

*survival and/or health-related quality of life

*costs to the NHS

*The use of healthcare resources and/or access to healthcare
