Health Innovation Manchester discover, develop, deploy
Our role is to seek out and bring forward a constant flow of innovations, accelerating them through the evaluation process and supporting them through our devolved decision-making structures so they are accepted at pace system-wide. This will transform the health and well-being of the population of Greater Manchester
We work to nine principals that encompass our collaboration and commitment to innovation, working with industry and academic partners to discover, develop and deploy health and social care improvements for our population.
Our impact will speed up the deployment of innovation into daily practice and will help address the significant challenges faced by the Greater Manchester health and social care economy.
We have a wealth of expertise from discovery science, research and clinical trials through to successful implementation of innovation, new clinical practice and improvement to benefit citizens, supported by pioneering informatics and analytics capability. We offer a wide range of support to industry to accelerate and support innovation
How we work
Our innovation access pathway offers a faster, lower risk, and assured journey from concept to adoption at scale by providing a systematic approach to capturing, evaluating, developing and prioritising innovations. Our active partnerships with health and care providers, throughout the innovation journey, help to qualify and develop innovations and fast track their implementation.
Work with us
We aim to make Greater Manchester the most innovative health and social care system in the UK. Greater Manchester’s exceptional academic and clinical assets, booming life-sciences sector and the massive opportunity of devolved accountability for health and social are just some of the factors that put the region in a unique position.
