A Regional innovation Fund (RIF) of £5million was launched by NHS England in November 2013, to support and promote the adoption of innovation and the spread of best practice across the NHS.
Bids for the fund were invited from NHS England, the NHS and Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs) and were managed by an Independent Clinical Panel.
Funding was allocated by NHS England in December 2013 and a list of the successful bids is now available. The allocations seek to deliver significant improvements in quality and efficiency in the NHS through innovation.
For more information on the successful RIF applications, please visit NHS England’s Innovation web-portal. You will need to register with the website in order to view the information. This only takes a few moments.
Once you are logged in, go to the Funding for Innovation page and click on the RIF link. Once registered, you will receive an email with a verification pin – please note that this may be redirected by your server to your spam folder.
If you would like more information about the RIF, please email the team.
