About NHS Innovation Challenge Prizes

A programme that combines magic lessons with effective motor therapy for children, a virtual clinic that speeds up fracture treatment, and a new way of working that cuts delays in lung cancer diagnosis – these are just some of the NHS-led projects that will receive NHS Innovation Challenge Prize funding and support.

The NHS Innovation Challenge Prizes encourage, recognise and reward these frontline ideas, and support innovators in getting them embedded across the NHS. This year they are supported by MSD, 3M, Allied Health Professionals, Academic Health and Science Networks and NHS England’s National Clinical Directors.

Three projects will receive major packages including up to £100,000, while a further 11 “acorn” projects will receive smaller bundles of support and funding.
