Innovation Agency Exchange

The Innovation Agency Exchange provides an online forum for colleagues across the healthcare sector to share innovations and challenges, and collaborate on ideas, projects and products to improve patient care.

Managed by the Innovation Agency, the 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.
