The Midlands is an exemplar region for health and life sciences, home to the largest MedTech cluster in the UK and boasting strengths across a whole range of disciplines; from ultra-high field imaging to addressing health inequalities amongst our communities.

Our region boasts over 1200 businesses operating within life sciences and supports 33,000 highly skilled jobs.

Our latest publication – Midlands Engine Health: A unified voice for health and life sciences in our region – provides an overview of not only the health and life sciences industry but also the aims of Midlands Engine Health in championing and amplifying our region’s unique strengths to UK Government and to international investors.

Midlands Engine Health is supported by Midlands Innovation Health, a partnership between the seven Midlands Medical and Healthcare Schools, and Midlands Health Alliance, a regional health research collaboration embedded within the NHS.
