The Commercial and Innovation team provide bespoke advice, signposting and support for innovators and businesses with products and technologies on or close to market, or that may be ready to spread across the NHS. We also provide advice to our NHS partners regarding technologies that can support service recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Now launched! On 23 September, we opened applications for our first Innovation Fellowship aimed at NHS staff working in North East London, North Central London or Mid and South Essex ICS. The 12-month programme will provide six Fellows – with a healthcare solution at proof-of-concept stage – with knowledge and support around key business areas to help them to scale their solution.

Innovations to support NHS services for long term conditions, cancer and mental health
As part of our ongoing work, we are interested to hear about technology and service solutions to support NHS services impacted by the response to COVID-19 and aid the recovery. In particular, solutions to:
- manage the waiting lists and increase in acute referrals
- support patients with long term conditions, cancer and mental health in community settings
- address cancer and cardiovascular investigations through contact-free or remote approaches
This call is for innovators who have a technology or service near to or ready for market. The support we can offer includes:
- Our team of in-house experts can provide bespoke advice, signposting and support for innovators and businesses. This call does not offer funding to companies.
- Our resources are focussed on products and technologies that are on or close to market, or may be ready to spread across the NHS. If you are at an earlier stage we can signpost to another organisation for help.
