You might be a local authority, in the community sector, a big business (non-pharma) or an enterprise organisation. We can help if you share our commitment to delivering health and wealth benefits to Wessex (Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, Dorset and south Wiltshire) within the period of our 5-year licence.
Health Innovation Wessex can offer unprecedented access to the NHS, research landscape and other businesses and key stakeholders in our geography. This can help you validate your ideas and approach, and identify partnership opportunities including perhaps product co-creation opportunities and setting up clinical trials. We can also reduce some of the barriers when dealing with the NHS, such as the complexity around procurement and navigating the health system.
Health Innovation Wessex has developed a cross sector innovation support infrastructure which includes networking and events, a strategic partnership with the SETsquared Partnership (Europe’s leading university business incubator) and other membership-type services.
Access to finance is a challenge that most organisations face. Health Innovation Wessex can help you navigate the funding landscape with information on grants and funding opportunities, as well as providing assistance in the form of bid writing or project support.
We have strong links with our local research infrastructure and can provide assistance with your clinical trials. This might include signposting and making introductions to potentially interested clinicians as well as supporting effective recruitment.
The adoption of the right cost-saving innovations will improve the efficiency and productivity of the NHS. Health Innovation Wessex is keen to help identify and assist with the spread of the right innovation for the benefit of the health service and the regional economy.
