Call for applications for the NHS Innovation Accelerator (NIA) programme

5 February 2015

The NHS Innovation Accelerator (NIA) programme aims to give patients more equitable access to cutting edge, high impact products, processes and technologies, by focusing on the conditions and cultural change needed to enable the NHS to adopt innovations that matter to patients, at scale and pace.

The NIA invites leading healthcare pioneers from around the world to bring their tried and tested innovations to the NHS. The programme aims to select a broad range of innovations – products, processes and technologies – to be more rapidly developed and scaled across the health service, to improve patient care, and reduce costs. The application opened 7 January 2015 and closes 27 February 2015 (12:00 noon). 

Applicants should be experienced innovators in healthcare who are currently leading or working on new technologies, services and processes that have the potential to make a real difference to patient outcomes
