NHS England holds an unrivalled position in global healthcare: it is the fifth largest employer globally, the world’s largest integrated health system, and manages one million patients a day.

The NHS has access to unique unified clinical data assets on well-defined patient groups which puts it in a strong position to drive research and development to deliver clinical innovation. There is considerable pressure to drive innovation to meet operational objectives and improve and embrace HealthTech – all areas where Swedish healthcare and tech companies can play a vital role.
