NHS Innovation Accelerator

The NHS Innovation Accelerator (NIA) supports promising real-world solutions to spread across the NHS in England. The national programme is commissioned by the Accelerated Access Collaborative at NHS England and NHS Improvement.

It is delivered in partnership with the 15 Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs) and hosted by UCLPartners. The NIA recruitment call for innovators will be open from 1 September to the end of October 2022. Successful applicants will have an innovation that is already in use in at least one site and that is supported by an evidence base.

The three-year Fellowship offers a bespoke learning programme, access to an expert pool of Mentors and 1:1 support from the NIA team. For more information about the NHS Innovation Accelerator and to apply for the 2023 cohort, visit: https://nhsaccelerator.com/apply/
