Your partner in nurturing pioneering technology innovation


The NHS National Innovation Centre (NIC), part of the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement, is now closed.

We are therefore no longer able to accept innovation enquiries through this website.

To access alternative sources of innovation support, please visit our Knowledge and Information Zone

Thank you.
