Identify Need & Communicate Demand

Programme Brief

By understanding the needs of the NHS and what innovation is being produced we help foster the knowledge of how to access the NHS market. To do this we have three main areas of work:

  1. We work with regional clinicians who have identified clinical issues where there are no current solutions. We attempt to match this need with commercial innovators who are developing solutions and need NHS partners to collaborate evidence.
  2. We collaborate with regional NHS bodies and clinical teams which are redesigning their services and looking for proven solutions. We also provide national and international searches and host events bringing together the NHS and innovators to explore what is possible.
  3. We identify innovators' needs and provide matching educational and networking events, support materials and introductions to key people where appropriate.
