Industry Associations


Bard Limited is a member of both the Association of British Healthcare Industries (ABHI) and the British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA), which are the industry associations for the medical technology sector in the UK.

The ABHI’s mission is to champion the benefits and use of safe and effective medical technologies to deliver high quality patient outcomes. With over 250 company members, ABHI leads the advocacy of the industry in order to advance access to medical technologies available to everyone who needs them. ABHI’s work focuses on the UK Market, Economic Growth, Regulatory and Ethics and Compliance.

The BHTA is the UK's oldest and largest healthcare association, founded in 1917. The members - almost 500 companies employing over 17,000 people – make or sell healthcare and assistive technology products that help people live more independently.

Both associations engage with the NHS, Government, regulators and other key stakeholders both here in the UK and abroad, in order to represent the medical technology industry.
