New Liverpool base seals success for the North West's NHS innovation experts

THE NHS North West's innovation experts, TRUSTECH, has expanded its growing base to Liverpool Science Park (LSP). The move forms part of TRUSTECH's plans to enhance its presence, and widen its operations in the North West, to reach a thriving customer base.  TRUSTECH was formed 13 years ago as part of a national network of NHS innovation hubs to improve healthcare through the development of innovative products and services. During this time, the organisation has experienced significant growth opening offices in Manchester and Daresbury. With LSP home to many science and knowledge based companies, the move to the Park will help drive TRUSTECH's ongoing expansion plans.  LSP chief executive, Chris Musson said:- "I am delighted to welcome such a forward thinking NHS body to the park, which will provide a great healthcare resource not only to our innovative tenants, but to the wider Liverpool City region.  The work carried out by TRUSTECH to link pioneering SMEs to the NHS captures the essence of what LSP is all about; providing active links between SMEs and the universities and industry."  Through its healthcare expertise and range of consultancy services, TRUSTECH provides companies located at LSP and across the wider Merseyside area, with a greater understanding of the needs of the NHS. The move enables more companies to access the services TRUSTECH offers, which will help drive forward innovation in the NHS and the rest of the UK. Raj Purewal, business development and partnerships director at TRUSTECH explains:- "To be able to collaborate as a partner with Chris and his talented team at LSP gives us an incredible opportunity, as we have exciting plans for assisting SMEs, entrepreneurs and innovators. The team at LSP have all been extremely welcoming, and we look forward to building further on this partnership – watch this space."  For more details, please visit:-, or if you would like an informal chat about how TRUSTECH can help, please contact:- or call:- 0161 276 5764.

A Giant's life through a lens

A special book and DVD which capture Liverpool's biggest ever event has gone on sale. 'On the Shoulders of Giants' chronicles the City's giant spectacular 'Memories of August 1914' which brought Liverpool to an awestruck standstill in July when a million people welcomed three very special visitors. The 104 page book comes with a stunning DVD and both relive the visit of the Grandmother Giant, Little Girl Giant and her pet dog Xolo as they came to the City to mark the centenary of the outbreak of World War One.  Following a call out in August which urged those who were part of the huge crowds to send in any outstanding images, more than a thousand were received. After an intense whittling down process, 21 lucky amateur 'toggies' have had their images published along with those of around a dozen professional photographers. The glossy publication is full of 150 beautiful images in total.  Assistant Mayor and Cabinet Member for Culture and Tourism, Councillor Wendy Simon, said:- "3 months after the event, and people still talk to me about the impact the return of the giants had on them.  It was an unforgettable 5 days in the history of the City and these 2 special souvenir items are sure to bring back some wonderful memories.  Since July, there has been a huge amount of demand for a book or DVD which people can either enjoy themselves or buy for loved ones at Christmas; so we're delighted to be able to produce both!"  On the Shoulders of Giants is available to buy from Liverpool Waterstones, WHSmith, other independent book stores across the City as well as the Tourist Information Centres at St George's Hall, the Albert Dock and Liverpool John Lennon Airport.
