LEP Sector Group - Health/life sciences
The Local Enterprise Partnership’s Health and Life Science Sector Group is a highly effective network representing the interests of organisations and companies involved in life sciences, health and social care, linking health, social and community care and the voluntary sectors with local businesses.
The Local Enterprise Partnership’s Sector Groups bring together business people from companies of all sizes across the supply chain to find ways to support businesses in their sector to grow and add value. Sector Groups deal directly with key concerns such as access to road networks, skills, broadband, bidding for and influencing public funding and investments. Sector Groups are open to anyone in the sector interested in assisting the sustainable growth of local businesses.
Aims for the Health & Life Sciences sector group:
- To explore areas where life sciences, health and social care sector will benefit economic growth in the region.
- To explore the best mechanisms to reflect key health and social care priorities for the WE region.
- To explore areas of human capital growth that could be expanded (e.g. training and workforce development).
- To develop appropriate links with other LEP sector groups with overlapping interests (e.g. High Tech and Social Enterprise).
