In order to drive innovation in the NHS, the NHS must positively simulate an environment that allows different organisations and sectors to collaborate to adopt new ways of working and have the resilience to take on sustainable change.

5 Regional Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs) within the East Midlands ( click here to visit the England website ) are working together to deliver system wide change by integrating services and removing organisational barriers with in the NHS. Our Innovation Exchange process has opened opportunities and dialogue between the NHS, industry and other sectors to help tackle health challenges in the region.

We also work closely with Biocity, Medicity and Loughborough and Leicester Enterprise Zone incubator sites to aid and advise start-ups and small companies to help drive innovation in the East Midlands.

The East Midlands Leadership Academy has a number of programmes available for NHS professionals to encourage innovative thinking and their role in spreading innovation also.
