Are you an innovator in the NHS?

Do you need support to develop an idea?

Do you have an innovation that is ready for adoption in other organisations?

Did you know that you may have trained NHS Innovation Scouts in your organisation that would be keen to hear from you? 

The North East and North Cumbria AHSN, Yorkshire and Humber AHSN and the regional NHS innovation hubs (Medipex and NHS Innovations North) are hosting a joint event for all Innovation Scouts and Innovation Champions in both regions to come together to share innovations and hear from each other about different approaches and strategies that are being used to develop a culture of innovation.

We are now opening this up to NHS innovators we are aware of that may be interested in this event and competition. We can help to introduce you to NHS Innovation Scouts in your organisation (where available) and you get an opportunity to apply for the event competition to win a cash prize to put towards your innovation. 

Business Case Prize of £1000

The event is free to attend and you are welcome to bring anyone from your organisation who has an interest in innovation and is interested in what’s going on in both of our regions.
