In our first year in our expanded role we saw some of the greatest challenges the NHS has faced in its 72-year history, yet we delivered some incredible achievements.
In 2019/20 our programmes have:
- provided more than 700,000 patients with access to proven health and care innovations
- helped over 2,500 innovators, including 477 health professionals as part of the Clinical Entrepreneur training programme
- delivered patient benefits – an estimated 12,000 fewer hospital admissions and 125,000 fewer days spent in hospital
- saved the NHS more than £50 million.
At the same time we have made a significant contribution to wider economic growth, with our programmes attracting over £450 million of investment and creating or safeguarding over 1,500 jobs.
The AAC’s Our Year in focus 2019/20 report provides further details on our achievements.
