Every innovation starts with an idea. Ideas from people like you. People working within health and social care who can spot opportunities, solve problems, and identify ways to make things better.

In healthcare it might be a new medical device, gadget, or piece of equipment; a new software or technology opportunity; or a service improvement. Anyone working in health and social care across Scotland can submit an idea to InnoScot Health. So, if you have spotted a way to improve healthcare, get in touch.

What we look for

We look for ideas that can become commercially viable healthcare products or services. Ideas that advance innovation and patient care. It could be an idea to improve, or complement, an existing product or device on the market, or something completely new.

Whatever idea you have, we strongly recommend reading our innovator guide to have a better chance of success.
