Innovation Scout Scheme

NHS Innovations North supports the Innovation Scout Scheme which was launched by the Academic Health Science Network for the North East and North Cumbria, to help create a culture for innovation within the NHS; with the focus on increasing the awareness of the importance of intellectual property and increasing bright ideas throughout NHS organisations.  

Healthcare professionals from across a variety of disciplines and areas of expertise are encouraged to attend a course relating to the Essentials of Intellectual Property, which allows individuals to gain the skills required to drive innovation and protect ideas within their respective organisations.    

Innovation Scouts are currently helping to stimulate bright ideas across our region, whilst supporting the development of an innovation culture within NHS Trusts and NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups.
