Work with Us
“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
Working collaboratively with patients, clinicians, academics and industry has always been at the core of our concept, and all are vital in ensuring that patients can receive the full benefit of medical technology, whether they are at home, at work, at a GP surgery, hospital, or other setting.
By partnering with us our expertise in medtech innovation could benefit your technology development by:
- de-risking innovative projects,
- identifying and addressing barriers to medtech development and adoption,
- identifying the best people and organisations to work with,
- reducing timescales to market,
- ensuring that your innovation addresses a real health need, and
- helping businesses to get more from their R&D spend.

Following initial discussions we are able to offer our services at consultancy rates of £1000 excl. VAT per day to businesses, or £750 excl. VAT per day to NHS and higher education institutes where we believe the development effectively addresses real patient need, and is aligned with our strategic direction. Consultancy rates for regulatory advice and activities vary according to circumstance, and will generally be quoted separately from the above rates.
In cases where our expert networks find that 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.
