Big Ask 2020 (reference only)
BIG ASK #1- Here to Help
Medilink Midlands in conjunction with the West Midlands Academic Health Science Network (WMAHSN) and East Midlands Academic Health Science Network (EMAHSN) is coordinating the region’s industrial activities and responses to this situation.
Open to regional and national businesses/organisation that would like to engage with our networks or other strategic approaches.
If your company has something that could assist or help with the COVID-19 situation, then join our ‘Big Ask’ and enter information on your company’s product, service, or manufacturing capability. Click here to enter your details > ‘Big Ask’ Questionnaire.
In these critical times, it allows us to fulfill industry enquiries, track interests and share important opportunities with our networks, and establish how we can help each other during this COVID-19 crisis.
BIG ASK #2- Find it/Source it
During the current pandemic, we have been made aware of critical shortages other than that of personal protective equipment (PPE) – such as Raw Materials, Goods, Skills & Services. This could be due to demand, supply chain failure or self-isolation. Medilink offers a free service to help. Find out more here
Let Medilink try to assist and source your request by utilising our extensive member and business networks. The information you provide will also be fed into local and national government organisations so that they too can be informed of the critical shortages that exist in the UK in terms of materials and items other than PPE.
This is service is free of charge. All Medilink asks is that if we are able to find you a source of material etc. that you let us know if our assistance has played a part in successfully resolving your requirement/s.
NB: A West Midlands company recently got in touch and we spoke about a COVID-19 related sourcing issue that they had. Medilink were able to search our database to identify and introduce them to a local supplier. After speaking directly to the owner of the local supplier the introduction was made within the hour! Why not let us see if we can do the same for you … we may not always be successful but we will do everything we can trying.

How COVID-19 B2B Opportunities Works
As companies relay to Medilink Midlands their needs, requirements, or business opportunities these will then be posted on our website and an email including the opportunity link will be forwarded to appropriate companies that we understand will be ideal and interested in such B2B opportunities.
