Central Manchester hospitals participates in NHS Innovation Fellowship video
Manchester Royal Eye Hospital is featured in the launch video of
the NHS Innovation Fellowship, a new programme which will draw
inspiration from some of the world's leading thinkers in the worlds
of health, business, academia and science into the NHS.
At Central Manchester hospitals, we're committed to ensuring
that patients get high quality care now, but recognise that it's
equally important for us to build better ways of working into our
services for the future. This is called innovation.
In-line with our mission, we are already using the skills that are
inherent within our organisation to improve people's health through
clinical research, and identify opportunities to drive continuous
improvements, in terms of quality of care and/or efficiencies.
We believe that collaboration is key to better equipping
clinicians to diagnose, prevent and treat illness through research
and innovation. So, we work with others - patients, other
researchers, charities and industry, combining our expertise to
translate research finding more quickly into clinical
practice. The NHS Innovation Fellowship is being developed to
complement the existing innovation infrastructure across the NHS,
by foster collaboration between managers within the NHS and some of
the world's most successful innovators.
The NHS Innovation Fellowship is in the process of selecting
host organisations, which will take responsibility for operating
and funding the scheme, including the recruitment of fellows.

Background to the NHS Innovation Fellowship
Innovation Health and Wealth- Accelerating Adoption and Diffusion
in the NHS report sets out actions to create a culture and
system for innovation in the NHS that continually scans for new
ideas and takes them through to widespread use. This system
requires the NHS to work with industry, academia, staff and
patients, to set an agenda for change and delivery.
Aims of the Fellowship
The purpose of the NHS Innovation Fellowship is to inspire and
support NHS leaders to champion innovation and develop an
innovative culture. This Fellowship sits alongside a number of
other Innovation Health and Wealth initiatives which also aim to
embed a culture of innovation at the heart of NHS staff at all
