Great to meet you at Two’s Company!

Thank you for connecting with us at the Two’s Company event at Discovery Park.

We link entrepreneurs, start-ups, SMEs and big business with colleagues working in all part of the health and care system across Kent, Surrey and Sussex, as well as nationally through the AHSN Network.

If you have a product or service ready for use in health and social care or you need some support to scale up, we can help ‘bridge the gap’.

We help companies through the healthcare maze, saving them time and money, and help them understand how the system works.

The AI in Health and Care Award

The new Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Health and Care Award will make £140 million available over three years to accelerate the testing and evaluation of the most promising AI technologies that meet the strategic aims set out in the NHS Long Term Plan.

The award supports technologies across the spectrum of development from initial feasibility and conception through to initial NHS adoption and testing of AI technology within clinical pathways.

Initially, it focuses on four key areas: screening, diagnosis, decision support and improving system efficiency.

A call for applications will run at least twice a year. The first call is now open and closes at 1.00pm on 4 March 2020. Innovators interested in applying for the AI in Health and Care Award are encouraged to talk to their regional AHSN for advice and support.

The ‘Bridging the Gap’ team provides workshops, one-to-one advice sessions and unique networking opportunities to support you to navigate the health and social care landscape. We can help in the following areas:

Market insights

We connect, entrepreneurs, start-ups, SMEs and big business with those working in the health and care system, voluntary sector and public health. Helping companies navigate the system’s complexity, opening doors and improving services for patients.

Support and Specialist Advice

The health and care system is complex, and it can be difficult to know where to get the help. We offer support and advice to companies and innovators  to develop a successful product or service.

Signposting to Funding

We can direct you to a range of local and national funding opportunities offering potential investment at all stages of product and service development – from early stages through to testing and commercialisation.

Access to National Programmes

AHSNs work with the NHS and government on a range of national programmes that can provide routes to market for companies.

Who we are

KSS AHSN’s ‘Bridging the Gap’ services identify, test and spread new and better ways to save money and improve services for patients by connecting health and social care, industry, researchers and the voluntary sector. There is a challenge for health and social care staff to see what technologies are available. Similarly, there’s a challenge for product and technology developers (industry) to know what’s needed.
