The Need for Specialist Consultants

Medical technology, consumable and capital equipment companies encounter similar challenges to the pharmaceutical industry, but the margins for medical devices and capital equipment tend to be lower and the product life cycles shorter. Although some notable companies are marketing led, many do not have a large internal marketing resource.  Newer external challenges include-

  • The abolition of PCTs and takeover by CCGs (Clinical Commissioning Groups)
  • New stakeholders and gatekeepers
  • Greater challenges to market entry and early adoption - NICE, HTAs etc
  • Lack of commissioning processes to identify and adopt new technologies
  • NHS structural and strategic changes - NHS Commissioning Board
  • Changes in Government, legislation and policy
  • New technologies – new chemical entities and innovations in delivery.

We have considerable expertise in medical technology and capital equipment.  Our managing director is on the management committee of the Medical Technology Group, so understands the challenges.  We can either work with your in-house team of independently.
