Nuture innovation

A culture change is required to create a more innovative, less risk-averse environment, able to take on new ideas for technology based engagement.

New technologies offer opportunities to work in new and innovative ways. It is therefore important that the NHS recognises the need to encourage a more open and innovative culture which can not only respond and test new ideas from internal and external sources, but which is placed to take on new ways of working enabled by technology rather than simply augmenting existing working patterns using digital means.

RecommendationsWe recommend an increase in the number and scope of new ideas piloted.

We recommend that the NHS Institute works to provide and advertise a safe structure to support the piloting of fresh ideas and new methods, helping those with ideas to take controlled risks.

If you have any new ideas that you would like to try please add a comment here. If you want support to carry out your own idea please add your project to NHS Live.
