Products & Spin Out

Driving improvements in the quality and value of patient care

Spin Outs

A strong record creating innovative companies

SHIL has a strong record in producing spin-out companies on behalf of NHS Scotland. Each company has been set up to produce and market healthcare innovations that originated from NHS Scotland employees.

If a product is thought to have the scope for more than one iteration, or if the innovator has ideas for multiple products in the same field, a spin-out company helps establish a brand for their products and raise capital from a wide range of sources. Actively supporting our healthcare professionals on this journey helps capitalise on the talent, entrepreneurism and commitment of our staff and uncover transformational ideas throughout NHS Scotland.

These spin outs continue to benefit the health service today achieving great success and demonstrating the potential of an initial idea.
