NHS England | September 2018 | NHS opens international search for new innovations
NHS England is calling on the best innovators from across the world to apply to join two schemes that aim to ensure NHS patients benefit from new technology faster.
Two programmes that look to spread innovation across the NHS have opened for new applications as NHS England once again champions the spread of the latest and greatest new technology.
Through the Innovation Technology Payment (ITP) NHS England can directly fund a small group of proven innovations to help spread them at scale across the NHS.
The NHS Innovation Accelerator (NIA) provides tailored support to innovators with compelling evidence-based innovations, to enable their innovations to be taken up at pace across the NHS. Eligible innovations must address one or more of the following priorities: prevention and early diagnosis (cancer, cardiovascular disease), mental health, primary care (Source: NHS England).
Applications for the ITP are open until noon on 3 October 2018, should be made on the NHS England Innovation website.
Applications for the NIA are open until midnight on 24 October 2018, should be made on the NHS Innovation Accelerator website.
