Case Studies

 

The Innovation Case Studies section provides a comprehensive list of exemplar innovation projects from across the NHS. These innovations have been carefully selected to represent a range of ideas from medical technologies through to service and pathway re design. Each case study provides a background to the innovation and a contact for further information.

 Click on the Case Study Browse area on the right to find examples by clinical area.

If you have an innovation case study you would like us to publish on the portal please contact the Innovation team at england.innovation@nhs.net
