Posted on 13/09/2019

Overview

NHS Innovation Accelerator is open for applications until 23rd October.

NHS Innovation Accelerator (NIA) is currently recruiting exceptional individuals with evidence-based, ready-to-scale innovations. NIA is an NHS England initiative delivered in partnership with England’s 15 Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs) and hosted at UCLPartners. The national programme supports dedicated individuals (‘Fellows’) to scale their high impact, evidence-based innovations across the English NHS and wider healthcare system for patient, population and staff benefit.

 

For its 5th Call for applicants, the NIA will select up to 12 new Fellows. Those selected will join a pool of existing Fellows and Alumni supporting 52 innovations. Applicants, nationally and internationally, can be clinicians; academics; from a public-sector, charitable or not-for-profit organisation; from a small or medium-sized enterprise (SME); from a large corporate.

  • The innovation demonstrates, in practice, significant outcomes for significantly lower cost
  • The innovation is supported by an evidence base and is ready to be diffused across the NHS
