The Welsh Government, in partnership with the Bevan Commission’s Bevan Exemplars programme, is issuing a call to NHS Wales staff to apply to become Health Technology Exemplars.

The Health Technology Exemplars programme will provide funding and support for NHS Wales staff to work in partnership with industry to implement an innovative health technology in their clinical area, with the aim of improving NHS Wales ways of working, solving health problems and improving health outcomes.

More widely, the Health Technology Exemplars programme will provide a mechanism to accelerate the scale up and widespread adoption of innovative health technology products and services.

Through this open call, NHS Wales staff will be invited to work with Life Sciences and Health sector organisations to identify and rapidly introduce an innovative health technology into the Welsh health system over the 15/16 and 16/17 financial years.

Successful applicants will receive up to £7500 of enablement funding and membership of the Bevan Innovators: Bevan Exemplars programme.

The programme’s broader aim is to realise increased healthcare value for NHS Wales as part of Prudent Healthcare delivery; and to drive wider Welsh Government objectives to improve health, wellbeing and stimulate economic growth.

The closing date for applications is 12pm on the 15 December 2015.
