We have expertise in the development of healthcare technology to enable innovators to work alongside clinicians and patients to ensure that new developments meet the needs of the NHS.
The Centre for Healthcare Equipment & Technology Adoption (CHEATA) is part of Clinical Engineering at NUH and offers a unique support service to clinical, academic and commercial med-tech developers to gather evidence for NHS adoption and to develop devices that are truly NHS-ready.
A unique collabroation between patients, researchers, scientists, industry and regulators led to the development of a new clinical product using amniotic sac tissue donated by elective caesarean patients. This successful collaboration creates an improved patient pathway for ophthalmology patients suffering from front of eye disease. It also enables new mothers to help many other patients through their tissue donation. The commercial application of this innovation is now being delivered by NuVision.
