Frontline healthcare workers often have great ideas about how to make improvements in the area they work in. Yet sometimes they lack the support to get their ideas off the ground. It could be funding, technical skills or knowledge about IP and licensing,
To address this issue, Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity set up the Bright Ideas Fund in 2009. The fund is designed to support and invest in the innovative ideas of staff working in Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals in London.
It supports frontline practitioners to take new ideas from concept to the prototyping stage, by providing funding and advice on intellectual property and helping innovators to find commercial backing.
