Healthcare and medical products and services are a vital part of the world economy. The UK's National Health Service (NHS) alone employs around 1.5 million people and spends almost £90 billion each year, rising to £110 billion in 2010. Businesses involved in the sector range from individual medical practitioners and consultants to huge pharmaceutical companies.
The sector includes medical and healthcare services and healthcare products such as medicines and medical devices. Different aspects of the sector include:
medical devices and systems, such as non-clinical hospital equipment or products such as aids for the disabled
non-clinical consultancy, such as advising governments on how to structure their health services
in-vitro diagnostics, ranging from simple over-the-counter pregnancy kits to sophisticated products needed for the diagnosis of cancer
laboratory technology, such as disease management and genomic research
healthcare and medical equipment, such as dental equipment
healthcare information technology
medical equipment and technical aids for care of the elderly
As well as standard healthcare services and products, UK businesses thrive in niche areas such as diagnostics, bio-device interfaces, informatics and laboratory technology.
The UK is also a world leader in biotechnology.
