#NHS70Innovations: celebrating 70 years of the NHS with a 70 days calendar of NHS innovations
In the run-up to the NHS 70th birthday celebrations on Thursday, 5 July 2018, the AHSN Network is teaming up with NHS Digital to showcase some of the latest healthcare innovations via an online calendar. Behind every door is an innovation that showcases some of the latest healthcare innovations that are making a positive difference to patients, carers, staff and NHS organisations.
Starting on Thursday 25 April 2018, the #NHS70Innovations campaign will shine a spotlight on the diverse range of innovations both existing and coming into the NHS, with a new innovation revealed every day.
Explore the countdown calendar at nhs70innovations.org.uk, and follow the #NHS70Innovations hashtag on social media. You can also see the countdown calendar below.
The innovations featured on the calendar include new technologies and devices, as well as innovative new ways of working and service improvements.
Most of these advances have been developed with the support of Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs), including many that are part of our SBRI Healthcare and NHS Innovation Accelerator programmes. The remainder have been developed or support by NHS Digital, as part of their role as the national information and delivery partner to the NHS.
