If you're an innovative digital health business you can now join regional digital health accelerators to speed up the adoption of technology in the NHS, relieve high pressure on services and empower patients to manage their health.
Taking part in a regional digital health accelerator could help you with opportunities to connect to NHS stakeholders, industry investors, patients, and other healthtech innovators.
The programme is uniquely positioned to provide in-depth knowledge of the NHS and wider UK health and care sector to high potential companies to help them refine, develop and scale their innovations. Focussing on engagement with clinicians and healthcare experts and working collaboratively to get to the root of health and care challenges and find solutions.
Support will be provided to companies accepted onto the programme. They will have the opportunity to attend workshops and training, “meet the expert” sessions, one to one clinics, and other events and learning opportunities hosted and delivered by the Accelerator and its clinical, topical, and business experts.
Each company is also assigned a ‘Navigator’: an experienced professional from the NHS who can provide expertise and advice on products in development, NHS navigation, and business models.
Support focuses on areas specific to individual companies’ needs, with a focus on engagement with different elements of the health and care system.
