This week TPP has joined UK Trade and Investment’s (UKTI) Smart Healthcare trade mission to India, led by Sir Malcolm Grant, Chairman of NHS England. The mission is travelling to Delhi and Mumbai and is comprised of leading NHS organisations, academic institutions and innovative healthcare companies. The NHS is known globally as the gold standard of healthcare, and the mission is aiming to provide India with the benefit of the combined expertise that these organisations possess.

Over the course of the mission TPP is hosting a demonstrator stand and presenting to a large selection of Indian institutions involved in healthcare. This is allowing TPP to bring its extensive experience across all healthcare settings, both UK and internationally, to India. The mission is also visiting the P.D. Hinduja hospital in Mumbai, a renowned site that was this year ranked as the sixth best multispecialty hospital in India.

Ashley Brook, Director, TPP said: “It is always an honour to be invited on trade missions and the chance to share our experiences and expertise with India is a fantastic opportunity for us.

We’re proud to play a part in the world-class healthcare that the NHS provides and the Smart Cities programme is an opportunity to bring a world class NHS healthcare model to India. Our vision has always been about connecting care across healthcare settings and regions. This is a key aspect to achieving better healthcare as part of the Smart Cities objective.”

Chris Born, Healthcare Specialist, Healthcare UK, said: “Healthcare UK brought this leading group of companies to demonstrate what they can offer the Indian healthcare market. We’ve found a huge appetite for collaboration with companies providing the leading edge in healthcare innovation and sustainable services.

A company with the experience and skills of TPP is what much of the Indian healthcare market say they would like to work together with in partnership.”               

Sir Malcolm Grant, Chairman, NHS England, said: “The UK has developed some of the most innovative healthcare services and systems in the world over the past nearly 70 years of the NHS but never before have innovation and adoption of new technologies within healthcare reached such levels as today.

Now, as India begins its creation of 100 Smart Cities, we are delighted to bring representatives of the UK system to show what can be achieved by working with smart services and systems. Our delegation consists of leading NHS hospital and healthcare trusts and select pioneering British companies whose innovative solutions are delivering results across health and care economies both in the UK and around the world.”
