We work with individual innovators, start-ups, SMEs and health tech companies to identify and support the adoption and adaption of innovations that improve health outcomes for our population, contribute to a thriving innovation ecosystem and facilitate economic growth. In our role as the Health Innovation Network for NW London, we are commissioned by the Office for Life Science (OLS) to deliver bespoke support for innovators, particularly innovations that facilitate the delivery of the wider NW London missions.
Starting with an Innovation Surgery, we will determine your alignment with local need, and where appropriate we will work to support the scale and adoption of your innovation.
We act as collaborator and system convenor, bringing together innovators and industry with the right people in the health and social care system to support with market research, framing of value propositions, and potentially adoption.
We are particularly interested in working with solutions that align with local priority across NW London, including Long-term Conditions, Enabling Care at Home and Children and Young people’s Mental Health, as well as sustainable innovations that align with the NW London Integrated Care Board’s green priorities.
From Invention to Implementation to Improvement, we’re here to realise the potential of your innovation.
If you have an innovation that is ready to go to market, once you’ve completed our Company/Innovator Engagement Form, our team will get in touch to organise a bespoke, Innovation Surgery.
These 60-minute deep-dives are dedicated time for our expert team to understand your value proposition, identify your needs, and provide you with advice & guidance on progressing through your innovation journey. As a minimum, you will receive a comprehensive written follow-up for you to refer back to, as well as signposting to other organisations which can support you. Where we identify alignment with local needs/Missions, we can then work with you to explore opportunities for supporting local work in NW London.
Could this support the development, adoption and spread of your innovation? Get in touch today.
