Launch of the NHS Innovation Accelerator

9 November 2016 Royal College of Nursing, 20 Cavendish Square, London W1G 0RN

Nicola Blackwood MP, Secretary of State for Public Health and Innovation, will be joining Professor Sir Bruce Keogh and other eminent speakers for the launch of the NHS Innovation Accelerator (NIA) 2016. 

The NHS Innovation Accelerator is an NHS England initiative hosted by UCLPartners in partnership with the fifteen Academic Health Science Networks across the country.  In its first year the NIA supported 17 exceptional individuals to scale their innovations and achieved some impressive results:

  • 388 additional NHS providers and commissioners using the NIA innovations
  • More than £17m secured in additional funding
  • 13 awards won in recognition of their work.

In 2016/17, the NIA will continue to support the initial 17 Fellows as well as supporting a further eight. This is an opportunity to meet and hear from the newly appointed eight Fellows and their evidence based innovations.

If you are interested in attending, please register your interest here by 31 October 2016.
