The NHS continues to face tough times in light of the on-going difficult financial climate and innovation has a vital role to play by improving the quality of patient care and releasing savings through productivity. Innovation is important to the NHS, for three reasons;

  • Innovation transforms patient outcomes.
  • Innovation can simultaneously improve quality and productivity.
  • Innovation is good for economic growth.

Each of our innovations covers one of these reasons.

If you are interested in any of the innovations and would like to know more detail please contact the Innovation Hub via email ideas.stees@nhs.net or telephone extension 54199 or pop into the Innovation Hub in the LRI.
