UK Capability in Healthcare and Life Sciences

The UK is recognised as a leader in global health, life sciences regulation and health technology assessment. A strong scientific heritage and a vibrant, growing life sciences industry reflects our reputation for delivering outstanding innovation. Whether early diagnosis, better treatment or tackling cancer and obesity, our MedTech industry plays a critical role in addressing the most critical healthcare challenges worldwide.


The UK’s National Health Service was the world’s first health service to commit to reaching carbon Net Zero by 2045. To reach these goals, the NHS is working with partners to reduce its carbon emissions, adopting innovations from greener medical devices to virtual healthcare.

Whether in digital health, life sciences or biopharma, the UK offers sustainable solutions to tomorrow’s healthcare challenges by inviting partnership through innovation. The UK already has a long and successful history of collaboration with governments and businesses in the Middle East, taking a partnership approach to jointly solve the most pressing healthcare challenges.
