About this event

This course, delivered as two 3-hour sessions across two separate days, will look at how to start innovating in the NHS context, and will provide you with the practical tools to assess your research for potential in a healthcare setting.

Using real case studies, we’ll explore how innovation works in the NHS, the opportunities and potential pitfalls to avoid when developing your research into something that can benefit patients.

Open to academics, researchers, clinicians and industry representatives, after attending the course you will be able to:

• Understand the innovation landscape in which the NHS works and the key stakeholders

• Understand the process by which new products and services are developed

• Be able to assess clinical unmet need and research potential existing solutions

• Make efficient and appropriate use of creativity tools to scope your solution using need criteria

• Produce an informed summary of your idea to start gathering support (within your organisation and with potential customers/consumers)


Day 1:

• What is innovation and what is it in the NHS?

• The NHS innovation landscape and barriers to innovation

• How the development process works and the stages involved

• Genuine unmet clinical need – what is it and how to identify and characterise it

Day 2:

• What’s out there already? (market assessment)

• Scoping solutions – the creative process

• Taking stock – innovation disclosure

• Gaining support – understanding the help available and key people to engage with

The training course will be run by Lindsay Georgopoulos of Medipex Ltd.
