NHS Clinical Entrepreneur Programme 2023

Applications will open October 2023! Help bring innovations into the NHS to improve patient care.

Are you a problem solver, creative thinker, or innovator in the NHS?
Do you have an idea you wish to develop and scale for patient benefit?
The NHS Clinical Entrepreneur Programme may be for you!

Applications to the programme will open from the 2nd – 29th October 2023,  with cohort 8 starting in March 2024.

The NHS Clinical Entrepreneur Programme, delivered by Anglia Ruskin University and part of the Accelerated Access Collaborative (AAC), is the biggest entrepreneurial workforce development programme of its kind.  We are inviting budding entrepreneurs to apply for this ground-breaking programme that is helping bring innovations into the NHS to improve patient care.  

The programme lasts 1 year, is free, and open to all NHS staff. It provides learning, opportunities and experiences through which entrepreneurs develop the commercial skills and knowledge to accelerate their innovations that will, in turn help transform patient care, as well as providing them with the entrepreneurial skills, knowledge and experience that will help them in their day jobs. A dedicated programme on how to build a start-up or develop an entrapreneurial idea is delivered as a series of educational events called pit stops, which can be attended either in person or virtually. 

The inclusive programme and community create a space where NHS staff can develop their innovation or idea without having to leave the health service. The programme offers mentoring, bespoke commercial education, customer matching, resources, and development tools and access to a community of likeminded individuals and industry experts. 

All NHS workforce staff with a great idea, at any stage of development, are encouraged to apply for this exceptional opportunity - could this be you or someone you know?  To get you application ready, join the CEP Prep webinar series throughout July and September 2023. You can find the full list of events on the website: www.nhscep.com/events
