The Innovation Exchange provides an online forum for colleagues across the healthcare sector to share ideas, innovative solutions, projects and products to improve patient care.

Managed by the Innovation Agency, an Academic Health Science Network for the North West Coast, we connect people working in the NHS, health and social care professionals, businesses, organisations and individuals who are looking for improved, effective and more efficient ways of working.

Browse 'All Projects' to find out what innovations are on the Exchange.  If you want to upload your innovation, please register - this will allow you to enter the process to get your innovation on the site, exchange ideas and access a wide range of support and resources from the Innovation Agency.
