Practical innovating in healthcare settings programme


Around 50 frontline NHS staff from across the Oxford AHSN region are currently participating in the ‘Practical innovating in healthcare settings’ programme. The first cohort started early in 2016 with a second getting under way later in the year.

The programme aims to help healthcare staff identify and introduce innovations that deliver better patient care and improve cost-effectiveness for the NHS. It supports NHS staff who are engaged in innovation, service improvement and service redesign.

The course comprises two modules totalling 12 full days over a year. See the lesson plan and study days for Module 1 of the latest programme which started in September 2016 here.
