Innovation Champion Network

Innovation Champions Actively Driving Innovation Across the Region

In partnership, the Yorkshire and Humber Academic Health Science Network (YHAHSN) and Medipex have established a network of Innovation Champions throughout the region.  The Innovation Champion Network aims to:

  • Empower individuals to promote and support innovative activities within their NHS organisations;
  • Encourage colleagues to come forward with their new and innovative ideas and inventions; and,
  • Promote the spread and adoption of new best practice and new technologies between NHS organisations

The Network is supported by formal, case study-led training; regular newsletters and workshops; a secure interactive web-forum and the experienced Medipex and YHAHSN staff. 

The network was launched in early 2014 and has grown to over 60 active Innovation Champions across a range of NHS organisations including Acute, Mental Health, Community and CCGs. 

There is no charge to join the Innovation Champion Network for any NHS organisation that is a member of the YHAHSN and/or Medipex. To hear more about the network, the benefits and roles, click on the below link:
