Last week it was great to attend the UK China Medical Technology Business briefing event held in the Cedars Court Hotel, Wakefield. This is part of a UK/China programme organised by CNUK and Medipex to help British companies explore the potential opportunities within the healthcare market in China.

It was good to engage with CNUK and how they can assist us in the process of how to access the Chinese healthcare market with their renowned specialist, Betty Su who advises medical device, diagnostic and biopharmaceutical companies on regulatory and pricing strategy with sales, marketing, Chinese FDA approvals and broker’s introductions etc. It was a very impressive presentation explaining the market place for pharmaceutical’s and devices along with the classifications of hospitals through the tier system which is worth an estimated £108 billion (2014) with a population of 200-300 million who are able to access care starting in the 3 main provinces Shanghai, Beijing and Guangdong.

Green Cross Medico have been granted the patents for both the Airglove and Secure 2 Part IV cannula dressing in China and have just completed the first Airglove patient evaluation trial with The Maidstone & Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust hospital which has shown some very good results. The Airglove is now currently in production and will shortly be available in the UK, for all enquiries please contact
