SBJBC in partnership with UKTI and PwC organised an important roundtable in London on 10 June for Saudi investors interested in investment and partnership opportunities in healthcare provision and medical technology. SBJBC Co-Chairs, Baroness Symons and Sheikh Nasser AlMutawa welcomed some 25 guests, and introduced speakers including Dr Mark Treherne, Chief Executive of UKTI’s Life Sciences Organisation; Professor Reza Razavi, Director of Research, King’s Health Partners; and Professor Rory Shaw, Medical Director of Healthcare UK.
Participants were briefed on the UK offer and the role of private capital and innovation in the UK healthcare system. A number of interesting proposals for joint research collaboration and co-investment were presented and discussed. These will be followed up by the investors and institutions participating with the support of the SBJBC’s healthcare working group.
