Innovation management

In the NHS, innovation occurs in the delivery of patient care, in the education and training of employees and in R&D programmes. Most innovations are best implemented by making them freely available through normal knowledge management processes when they have demonstrated a quantifiable health gain.

However, some innovations are inventions which can be realised only through commercial development, and for these the R&D Department works with Cambridge Enterprise and Health Enterprise East to support investigators in exploiting any new intellectual property. Cambridge Enterprise will lead on the development and exploitation of any intellectual property which has been created Trust employees working together with University colleagues. Health Enterprise East will lead on the development and exploitation of any intellectual property which did not involve a University employee in its creation.

Intellectual property will be managed in accordance with the Trust’s Intellectual Property Policy:

Please contact Michale Bouskila, Stephen Kelleher, or Mary Kasanicki  if you have any innovative ideas.
