The North of England – An Internationally Recognised Health and Life Science Ecosystem

The North of England’s profile as a hub of health science has been on an impressive trajectory over the past five years. With some of the most illustrious health science institutions in the world. Analysis funded by the Northern Health Science Alliance (NHSA), and conducted by the think tank IPPR North last year, shows that the health and life science economy in the north is worth over £17 billion to the UK economy, over £10 billion of which is contributed by private sector life science companies. Suzanne Ali-Hassan, Business Development Manager for the Northern Health Science Alliance, discusses the health and life science ecosystem in collaboration with CEO, Dr Hakim Yadi.
