Matchmaking Testimonials:

  • From David Bingham, CEO HSC Business Services Organisation and Sean Donaghy, Regional Director of eHealth and External Relations, HSC Board
    These short meetings are a valuable opportunity to hear of what industry has to offer to support better health and care.  They cannot form part of a procurement process, but they can have a valuable part to plan in increasing your understanding of the market
  • From Siobhan Hanna, Assistant Director of Informatics - Southern Health & Social Care Trust Northern Ireland
    The Marketplace gave me the opportunity to address priorities within our ICT Strategy through targeted meetings with potential suppliers. The matchmaking format of 15 minute meetings maximised my time and has then allowed me to follow up with suppliers where there is a real fit.’
