Posted on 6 October 2016 (Permalink)

The deadline for a groundbreaking fund to help small creative and digital businesses (SMEs) to bring innovative concepts and/or prototypes to the NHS marketplace has been extended until 11 November or until funds have been exhausted. 

Funded by Creative England's Regional Growth Fund and managed by Creative England in partnership with the Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust and the West Midlands Academic Health Science Network, the Interactive Healthcare Fund offers £500,000 via investments of up to £50,000 per application. Companies must be based in England, outside of Greater London. Applications will be assessed on a rolling basis. 

Funding will support the development of innovative concepts or prototypes using digital technology to improve patient care and health services, in response to the identified WMAHSN priority areas. We are looking for projects which focus on WMAHSN's priority areas and: 

  • Push forward creative and commercial boundaries
  • Have a strong chance of exploitation in the market and the potential for a significant lifecycle
  • Have the active involvement of the Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust and/or the West Midlands Academic Health Science Network.
