British Healthcare Mission Explores Partnership Possibilities With Indian Healthcare Sector

The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and British High Commission organized a seminar to explore the possibility of pushing medical tourism in India along with joint ventures in services and manufacturing. They invited the // United Kingdom Trade and Investment's (UKTI) healthcare mission to lead the discussion with Indian partners in Chennai on Wednesday.

The British delegation was lead by David Hawkins and the group had discussion with healthcare providers like Apollo Hospitals, KG Hospital in Coimbatore and Trivitron Medical systems.

Mike Connor, the British deputy high commissioner inaugurated the daylong meeting and appraised the visitors of the growing Indian healthcare industry and pointed out that published figures put the annual growth of health insurance premium in the country at 60 percent and above.

He said:"Chennai and South India in general have a long-standing reputation for healthcare innovation.”

"One of the first female doctors in the English-speaking world, Mary Ann Dacomb Scharlieb, qualified from the Madras Medical School in 1878," Connor recalled.

"That was at a time when women were not allowed to train as doctors in Britain. The Madras Medical School (now college) continued this tradition when the first Indian woman doctor graduated from the same school just a few years later," Connor said.

One key area that was discussed was about accreditation of the institutes and standardizations. Chairman of the healthcare sub-committee of CII's southern region G. Bakthavathsalam also spoke and impressed about the partnerships in technology transfer and clinical trials.

David Hawkins said: “India today has the same cardiac, diabetes and oncology profile as developed countries”
