Why join the Medical Technology Group?

Joining the MTG is about partnering with other groups – patients, charities and industry – to develop a strong, clear message and deliver more effective outcomes than organisations can do working alone.

Becoming an MTG member will bring benefits to your organisation. But the biggest benefit will be to strengthen our capacity to encourage and effect change, so that appropriate medical technology is available throughout the NHS to everyone who needs it.

How we work

Campaigns:
Including reports on patient access to insulin pumps and fibroid embolisation, as well as a wider report on the benefits of medical technologies.

Influence:
One-to-one meetings with MPs and group meetings with key decision-makers.

Communications:
Quarterly members’ meeting, briefings on new health care legislation and a regular MTG Bulletin.
