Applications invited for the NHS Innovation Accelerator

The NHS Innovation Accelerator (NIA) is an award-winning NHS England initiative, delivered in partnership with all 15 Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs)and hosted at UCLPartners.

The NIA is now opening recruitment to select up to 12 Fellows with evidence-based innovations that are ready to scale for patient, population and NHS benefit.

The NIA aims to appoint exceptional individuals representing compelling, evidence-based innovations combined with a convincing, ambitious plan for how you will scale your innovation for greater patient benefit. The emphasis in the selection process is equally on both the strength of the applicant and the strength of their evidence-based innovation.

You can be the inventor of the innovation, the lead for it within your organisation, or simply the representative of an innovation you find compelling and wish to scale across the NHS. The NIA is an inclusive programme that aims to use innovation to improve outcomes for all patients.

The time commitment for the NIA is two days per week.
