Healthcare UK has exceeded its 2013 to 2014 targets for contracts signed and organisations supported.

Managing Director Howard Lyons has announced that Healthcare UK far exceeded its targets for last year.

British organisations have secured £556 million of healthcare contracts during 2013 to 2014, £200 million more than the target set for the year.

Healthcare UK has assisted over 600 organisations, double the target, and has organised more than 60 missions, high level meetings and events.

Speaking at the recent Healthcare UK Business Forum, Mr Lyons commented

With such an encouraging start, confidence is high that UK healthcare organisations will capitalise on the £10 billion pipeline of healthcare opportunities identified over the last year.

The UK is set to play a leading role in the development of health systems and infrastructure, improving the quality of healthcare delivery for our valued international partners in China, Brazil, India and the Middle East.

Over 80 participants from private companies, NHS organisations and public bodies attended the business forum. They discussed the plans for Healthcare UK in the coming year, including opportunities in China and the potential for UK organisations in South America and Indonesia.
