The UK and Israel have a strong and important trading relationship, and we are committed to strengthening it. We have a dedicated team in our Embassy in Tel Aviv which actively promotes UK-Israel trade. They have succeeded in increasing the export of medical devices to Israel.

The UK-Israel Tech Hub, based at the Embassy, helps to create tech and innovation partnerships across several sectors, including healthcare. One of their projects, the UK-Israel Dangoor Healthcare Initiative, aims to create a pipeline of digital innovation for the NHS.

There is also extensive bilateral collaborative medical research between the UK and Israel.
