This document provides NHS organisations with an overview of the main things to consider when beginning their export journey. This will help those with limited international experience to maximise their chances of success (and minimise risk).

  • Why engage in international activity.
  • Underlying principles of NHS international activity.
  • Creating an international strategy.
  • Developing a general service proposal.
  • Marketing a healthcare solution.
