Innovation opportunities offer the promise of transforming how we treat patients for better outcomes and efficiency. The Oxford AHSN Clinical Innovation Adoption team has introduced innovation into the NHS successfully by understanding priorities, clinical need, identifying best in class innovation, supporting successful implementation and enabling NHS organisations to sustain change. Involvement and ownership by patients, frontline staff and industry in this process is key. We are responsive to the uniqueness of each project and adapt support to optimise success.
Since 2013 our programme has been working to respond to continuing growth in demand on the NHS. Since the publication of the government Accelerated Access Review in October 2016, AHSNs and innovation have been focal points for both NHS transformation and life science growth.
