Health Minister Lord Howe was met at GE Healthcare’s Grove Centre R&D and manufacturing site by President and CEO John Dineen and Pascale Witz, CEO of GE Healthcare’s Medical Diagnostics business, which is headquartered at the site.

At The Grove Centre, Lord Howe visited research laboratories where scientists are working on new ways to detect cancers and neurological diseases at an early stage. In particular, the teams at the site develop imaging products used during medical scanning procedures to highlight disease in organs and tissues of the body at a molecular level. This can help physicians in the early detection, diagnosis and management of many of today’s complex diseases.

“I am delighted Lord Howe has visited us today to learn about our innovation in healthcare technology,” John Dineen said. “The imaging techniques that we are pioneering and developing here in the UK are vital to the future of medicine. They will enable faster, more accurate and earlier detection and diagnosis of disease, and allow clinicians to better assess the effectiveness of treatments.”

The Minister discussed GE Healthcare’s global operations and the wide range of services, technologies and solutions the company provides to improve health and healthcare systems, including new technologies that can allow patients to be remotely monitored independently in their homes. As a major supplier of diagnostic and clinical equipment and health IT systems to the NHS, the Ministers were interested in learning GE Healthcare’s views of the current reforms.

Health Minister Lord Howe said, “I am delighted to see first-hand the important role that research and innovation are playing in developing new technologies that can make a real difference to patients’ lives.

“We are determined to make the NHS one of the leading healthcare systems in the world and technological advancements which GE Healthcare contributes to, play a huge part in this. In the future, they will enable us to detect diseases such as cancer much earlier – all vital developments as we move towards a more modern NHS.”

GE Healthcare was the first GE business to be headquartered outside the United States and has more than 2,700 employees in the UK. The company’s history in Amersham goes back to the 1940s with establishment of the UK’s first radiochemical laboratory. This eventually became Amersham plc, which was acquired by GE in April 2004.

Amersham is one of GE Healthcare’s main R&D and manufacturing bases. The Grove Centre produces and distributes a range of imaging, diagnostic and therapeutic medical and bioscience products. It dispatches about 250,000 packages a year to more than 60 countries, including 100 hospitals and 500 life science institutions in the UK.
