Working with business has always been at the core of our concept – businesses are vital in ensuring that patients can receive the full benefits of technologies.
D4D has developed robust processes and highly effective networks of clinicians and scientists with over 100 years experience in developing innovative medical technologies.
By collaborating with D4D, Medical Technology businesses can get:
- more from their R&D spend,
- reduce timescales to market, and
- ensure that they deliver products that meet real needs.

“D4D is a significant partner, providing a clear understanding of the NHS and deep technical expertise that has been invaluable in testing and improving the Elaros system to a point where we confidently expect to launch into the NHS market later this year”- ELAROS 24/7
When D4D initiate projects ourselves, we seek advice from industry experts from early stages to ensure that manufacturing, licensing and supply chain needs can be properly considered as the project develops.
When external funding is obtained to further a project, industry partners’ costs are covered where appropriate, just like any clinical, patient, charity, research or design partners.
Meeting business needs
D4D is uniquely positioned to provide valuable knowledge and facilitation to Industry-led projects and proposals by:
- Enabling access to our expert networks of clinical experts and patients;
- Applying our knowledge, tailored to organisations’ needs in the following areas:
- Concept validation
- Clinical evidence planning
- Regulatory guidance
- Support with grant applications
- Signposting within the NHS

All services are available at consultancy rates to businesses where our expert networks believe they effectively address real patient need. In cases where our expert networks find that industry proposals are strongly aligned with areas of the highest clinical priority and have strong and demonstrable patient pull, we may provide some aspects of our expertise on a pro bono basis.
