Biomed Sheffield – An important initiative for the SCR Healthcare Sector

Fripp Design and Research are proud to be members of the Biomed Sheffield Healthcare Sector Group.

The current Government has a completely different view of how Government supports and engages with the SME business sector.

Whereas the previous Government had a ‘top down’ approach (i.e. initiatives and support came via Government appointed agencies such as Yorkshire Forward and Business Link), the current Government has a ‘bottom up’ approach i.e. they are looking to the regions to advise and tell Government what it needs and wants. The conduit to communicating this to Government is the LEPs.

In the Sheffield City Region the LEP is appointing a number of sub groupings based on the SCR priorities; one of which is Healthcare.

Biomed Sheffield is being formed as the group which advises (lobbies?) the Sheffield SCR LEP on Healthcare priorities for our region. Therefore if you are involved in Healthcare and want to ensure our region receives the maximum support, possible, from central Government, we advise that you get involved. The greater the involvement, the greater the influence we will have.

There is a launch event taking place at the AMP Technology Centre on Tuesday 27th March starting at 12:30. For more details please contact
