Neomi Bennett

CEO, Neo-Innovations UK

Neomi is a registered nurse and the brains behind the life-saving product Neo-slip, which has developed into a highly successful enterprise.

The multi award-winning Neo-Slip is a novel, innovative yet practical solution that aids application of hospital stockings. The stockings prevent Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT); demand is high because currently 25,000 die each year in the UK of preventable DVT. The company supplies 34 hospitals across the UK and is available on NHS prescription or from BOOTS pharmacy. Featured on BBC’s Dragons’ Den, Neomi is passionate about education, patient safety and innovation in healthcare.
In January 2018, Neomi  was awarded a British Empire Medal for services to nursing and healthcare following the design of the Neo-Slip.
