Member Benefits

There are many benefits to being a UKIHMA Member.

International Commercial Opportunities

We work on behalf of our members to scan global portals to obtain and win commercial opportunities, and we filter these portals to match our members’ skills and capabilities. We support our members to register their interests and, where needed, to facilitate the formation of expert consortia within UKIHMA.

Marketing Your Expertise

Our aim is to showcase your expertise around the world. We achieve this by inviting you to join one of our Special Interest Groups (SIGs).

Through the SIGs, you will work alongside other companies and organisations with complementary skills and capabilities.

We will include your company in our SIG brochures where we describe our specialist offers and the members who form part of each team. We distribute our marketing materials throughout the world, providing you with the opportunity to connect to a world wide network of healthcare decision makers.

We not only respond to formal tenders but we proactively seek new partners and projects through our brochures and our creative problem solving workshops (‘Hackathons’)
