Innovation in the NHS - Online Workshops

An introduction to the Yorkshire & Humber Innovation Champions Network and practical advice on how to start innovating.

Held by Medipex and the Yorkshire & Humber Academic Health Science Network, this interactive workshop provides an overview of why innovation is important in the NHS and support that is available to NHS innovators and those who are seeking solutions to address an area of need.  Through presentations and group exercises we will explore:

  • How do we identify genuine unmet clinical needs?
  • What is the best way to approach identification of solutions to problems?
  • Tools to help generate and fine tune solutions
  • How new ideas are assessed and the support available from Medipex
  • Support available for wider adoption and the spread of tested ideas from the Y&H AHSN
  • The role of the Innovation Champion and the Network to affect culture change
