The Commercial and Innovation team at UCLPartners provide bespoke advice, signposting and support for innovators and businesses with products and technologies on or close to market, or that may be ready to spread across the NHS. We also provide advice to our NHS partners regarding technologies that can support service recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

We focus on innovators who have a technology or service near or ready for market. If you are at an earlier stage we can signpost to another organisation for help. As part of our ongoing work, we are interested to hear about technology and service solutions to support NHS services impacted by the response to COVID-19 and aid the recovery.
Cardiovascular disease prevention
UCLPartners is committed to progressing its Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) prevention programme to drive large scale prevention of heart attacks, strokes and other circulatory problems.
We focus on innovators who have a technology or service near or ready for market. If you are at an earlier stage we can signpost to another organisation for help.

The incidence of melanoma is increasing faster than any other form of cancer, and it is responsible for the majority of skin cancer deaths. Patients in whom melanoma is diagnosed at stage I have more than a 95% chance of survival compared with 8-25% with a stage IV diagnosis, highlighting the importance of early and accurate diagnosis. Skin Analytics have crafted a series of AI algorithms that can take a dermascopic image of a skin lesion and help identify skin cancer.
HealthUnlocked is an electronic social prescribing tool which lets GPs prescribe information, local services and online support for patients with unmet health and social needs such as loneliness, isolation, obesity, anxiety and depression. The HealthUnlocked EMIS plug-in was developed with the support of Care City, a healthy ageing innovation centre commissioned by UCLPartners.
