D4D’s Clinical Director, Professor Wendy Tindale OBE, has been involved in supporting and guiding researchers within the NHS for many years. In an article in IPEM’s SCOPE magazine she gives an introduction the ways that people can approach research and innovation in the health service, and what they need to consider.

The NHS has defined innovation as: ‘An idea, service or product, new to the NHS or applied in a way which is new to the NHS, which significantly improves the quality of health and care wherever it is applied’.

Whether you’re a seasoned healthcare professional or you’re new to the NHS and considering whether to embark upon a research project for the first time to bring about healthcare change, this article provides useful background information.
