Working with colleagues from across NHS Scotland, we have successfully developed and commercialised a variety of products and technologies that make significant, positive change in patient care.
Time pressures can be one of the biggest barriers to bringing an idea or innovation forward. InnoScot Health therefore, use years of experience to guide health and social care staff through the entire development process, which may otherwise be impossible to balance with clinical and personal commitments.
Translating innovative products from idea to adoption requires a range of skills, many of which are not readily available. That’s where InnoScot Health adds huge value to NHS Scotland as a dedicated team working to accelerate the development of ideas and projects.
