The NHS Innovation Accelerator (NIA), an initiative delivered in partnership with England’s 15 Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs) and hosted at UCLPartners, announces its fifth call for fellowship applications. The deadline is Oct. 23, 2019.
The program is designed to support innovators by scaling their high impact, evidence-based innovations across the English NHS and wider healthcare system for the benefit of patients, staff, and the population. The twelve Fellows selected will join existing Fellows and Alumni supporting 52 innovations.
Applicants can be the inventor of the innovation, the project lead or the representative of an innovation. They can be clinicians, academics, from any size enterprise, or from a public-sector, charitable or not-for-profit organization. Applicants’ innovations should address the following criteria: one or more of the commitments laid out in the NHS Long-term Plan; significant outcomes for significantly lower costs; supported by evidence and ready to be diffused across the NHS. The applicant should have a passion for learning and for sharing their insights and be committed to scaling evidence-based innovations for the benefit of patients.
