The Accelerator is able to draw upon the support of a number of key partners who together bring a rich range of resources and expertise from healthcare, research, innovation, digital health and tech.
Our network of partners reaches every NHS organisation, including trusts, commissioners and purchasers.
We also have access to the support of experts in the digital innovation field and business sector.
Together we bring expertise from healthcare. healthcare, research, innovation, digital health and tech sectors to support innovators in navigating the often complex world of healthcare innovation.
The partners believe in the enormous potential for digital health innovations to make a positive impact on health and social care – both in improving outcomes and experience for patients, and in working towards a more sustainable and economically efficient healthcare system for all involved.
Many of the ideas and innovations that can have the greatest impact are those coming from the business community and we are committed to supporting them from innovation to deployment.
