Opportunity for modelling and simulation projects as programme is launched to find experienced innovators in healthcare.
A new programme, launched this month by NHS England’s Medical Director, is inviting healthcare innovators from around the world to apply to develop and scale their tried and tested innovations across parts of the NHS.
The NHS Innovation Accelerator Programme, which was launched on January 7th 2015, by Sir Bruce Keogh, represents a potential opportunity for modelling and simulation projects.
The programme is looking for experienced innovators in healthcare who are currently leading or working on new technologies, services and processes that have the potential to make a real difference to patient outcomes.
The programme will offer successful candidates a range of support to develop and spread their innovations across parts of the NHS – such as access to international leaders in healthcare development and established networks through high caliber mentors including Lord Ajay Kakkar, Lord Ara Darzi, Sir John Tooke and Sir Sam Everington.
The first wave application process is now open. Innovators from across the international healthcare spectrum are invited to apply. For more information, including criteria and the application form, please visit www.england.nhs.uk/accelerator/.
The closing date for applications is 27 February 2015.
