A new cross-sector partnership has been signed to boost health technology innovation across the Leeds City Region.

The partnership - which includes local authorities, the regional enterprise partnership and the NHS - aims to improve health and care through the use of HealthTech innovation.

The move also aims to radically speed up the region’s productivity and economic growth in the sector.

Rob Webster, CEO lead for West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership said: ‘We are delighted to be part of this agreement. Innovation in health technology has the potential to transform services, improve health outcomes and most importantly save people’s lives.

‘This Memorandum of Understanding is an important step in developing closer partnerships between health technology companies and health and care organisations across our area.’

The memorandum of understanding was arranged and prepared by Leeds Academic Health Partnership (LAHP).
