Innovation is at the heart of NHS transformation – it will be the key component in ensuring we can develop and deliver NHS services effectively in the future.
Using our resources to maximum patient benefit is essential – and that includes the way we approach innovation and the way we work together to develop new technologies and approaches and harness intellectual energy.
Here in NHSGGC we have some of the very best clinicians in the country. Working together in world-leading research and development and clinical trials with university colleagues puts us in pole position to remain in the vanguard of innovation.
These dynamics have the potential to deliver groundbreaking developments in eHealth and artificial intelligence to their maximum.
To help ensure our resources are channelled and managed most appropriately and supported to win national and international funding, a new Innovation Governance Group (IGG) has been created.
This new group will provide a shared resource for those who have innovation projects and new developments that might merit an injection of development investment and eHealth support.
The group will be able to prioritise your project and support a team effort with a rapid injection of additional support and expertise in securing UK Innovation funding – or funding from other sources.
It will be able to agree NHS resource utilisation and governance of access to NHS assets such as data, tissue and images.
Jointly chaired by eHealth director William Edwards and research and development director Professor Julie Brittenden, the IGG will approve and register innovation projects and support them.
