General enquiries

If you are looking for general signposting assistance, or are not sure what help we can provide it is best just to contact us and find out what we can do.

We also hold many events throughout the year which can facilitate networking and making connections.

Do you have a proven idea which links to one of our clinicial priority areas?

From time to time we issue “calls for proposals” for our clinical priority areas; Cancer, Diabetes, Older People Living with Frailty, Mental Healthand Obesity. This also includes patient safety and you should refer to the patient safety pages to see exactly which areas the team are prioritising.  Following a "call", if succesful your project could gain our support. The best way of reaching out to us if you have a proven idea that you’d like us to help you with is to register your innovation with us. We will keep you informed when we have a call for proposals or hold an Innovation Exchange event in that priority area.

What if I have an idea which sits outside your priority areas?

If you have an innovation that sits outside our priority areas then please fill in our docxExceptional proposals self assessment form and send it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
