Innovation is the process of bringing together new science, ideas and improvements to benefit our patients and the quality of care that we provide. Innovation at our hospitals means doing something different, better or safer.

It can have a commercial aspect that will help us to provide better care more efficiently. It can also enable NUH to gain financial reward and inward investment for the new technologies, techniques and ways of working that will benefit patients here, across the UK and internationally. The NHS as a whole is a major investor and wealth creator in the UK, and in science, technology and engineering in particular.  NUH is committed to playing our part in supporting the advancement of these disciplines including through our extensive research portfolio.

We encourage all of our staff to innovate and improve the care we provide and as a leading teaching hospital, we work in collaboration with the best scientists, clinicians, academics and industry partners to ensure that we continue to lead the development of excellence in NHS care for all of our patients.
