The Innovation Pathway

The Innovation Pathway depicts our business assist services.

We bring together industry partners with the health and social care sectors, speeding up development and uptake of innovations. This Innovation Pathway has been designed in conjunction with all 15 AHSNs to help innovators navigate the support available and describes how we can accelerate the development and adoption of innovations in the NHS to improve patient care.

The pathway describes how AHSN co-ordinated support with partners can provide a unique opportunity for industry to access bespoke services in a seamless fashion, covering the life cycle of innovation from conception of an idea to potential funding via SBRI Healthcare and other programmes and then through to its eventual adoption and realisation of commercial success.

The Eastern AHSN is here to support companies to engage in the NHS in order to improve patient care.  We know that in the east we rich in entrepreneurs and innovations that can transform the diagnosis, treatment and management of the full range of clinical conditions.
