Would £5,000 of fully funded product development or quality + regulatory support sound good to you?

Are you working in a Staffordshire based business?

Does your business want to access (or increase your sales in) the healthcare / medical devices market?

If you said “yes” to all of these, then we’re delighted to say that you can access help through our team.

This is because Three Circles has again won a tender to supply product development guidance and regulatory guidance, CE marking and support services to companies developing medical technologies, via the Keele University and University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust (UHNM) Business Bridge programme.

The news builds on our track record of help to a number of Staffordshire based SMEs, during the first round of Business Bridge support.  We helped three SMEs to enter and grow their share of the UK medical device market (by sorting out their regulatory and quality requirements), as well as helping another SME create a realistic product development plan and embark on their journey to the market.


Matthew Theobald, our New Product Development team leader commented:

“I’m really proud that we have again been selected to support local businesses develop innovative products for the healthcare market.  Our team are proud to be able to help improve patients lives and we love seeing these smaller organisations flourish and grow.”

Business Bridge funding for medical device development

The Business Bridge programme supports businesses based in Staffordshire, UK, currently working within or hoping to access healthcare markets. The partnership between Keele University and UHNM provides fully funded innovation vouchers to the value of £5,000 to eligible companies.

The vouchers can be exchanged for access to an expert panel of specialist advisors within the healthcare and medical markets and/or specialist support such as; support for market access, product design, prototyping and testing and CE marking and other regulatory advice.
