A new service from the Accelerated Access Collaborative (AAC) offering comprehensive and tailored support to healthcare innovators is now available.

The NHS Innovation Service provides access to coordinated support and guidance from organisations with expertise in the development and widespread adoption of health innovation. The service will help healthcare innovators work with the NHS and get the support they need to get their innovation to clinicians and patients faster.

Innovators can access support from organisations like National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) and NHS Supply Chain, amongst many others. This includes support to understand NHS regulations and standards; the evidence required to introduce a new innovation; and the NHS procurement and reimbursement processes.

The service offers a central point of access to these organisations with proven expertise in getting healthcare innovation into the NHS. It also helps innovators receive more joined-up support as the organisations providing guidance can access the innovator’s single innovation record at each stage, which will accelerate the process and avoid duplication.
