Innovation Road Map

This Road Map provides an overview of organisations, groups and teams that support innovation, innovators and entrepreneurs and highlights how they can get support for their ideas & innovations  that support  priorities in the NHS Five Year Forward View.

The organisations, groups and teams outlined in this section provide unique and specialised support in a range of areas from clinical and technical advice, funding for pre commercial development through to implementation advice.

The Road map offers:-

  • A reference point for information about the organisations, groups and teams that support innovation at a local and national level.
  • The Road Map is intended to signpost users to the most appropriate support by identifying organisations which can provide help in progressing an innovation through its development journey.
  • It identifies the kinds of support that these organisations can offer (in general terms) to transformational priorities of the Five Year Forward View.
  • It is updated periodically to reflect any changes in the landscape.
