The 17 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) selected for the Accelerator 2023/24 programme have digital solutions or services that have the highest potential to meet London’s NHS and social care challenges. From apps to AI robotics, remote monitoring to diagnostics, and diabetes to cancer, the solutions from these 17 companies will transform pathways across the sector.
