Department for Business and Trade

About Us

The Department for Business and Trade helps businesses export, drives inward and outward investment, negotiates market access and trade deals and champions free trade.  Our Healthcare UK and Life Sciences teams are in place to support UK companies to export and connect with overseas opportunities.  We work with our overseas colleagues in 96 markets in regions, such as the Middle East, APAC, India, China, USA, ECAN and the USA.

Healthcare UK is a joint initiative between the Department of Health and Social Care, NHS England and Improvements and the Department for International Trade.  We collaborate with NHS organisations and Hospitals in the UK, to promote their work internationally.   

We would like to hear from UK companies who wish to export, or from international companies interesting in partnering, or securing UK innovations and products. Please do contact us at
