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.

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
