About Us

Health Innovation Yorkshire & Humber is one of 15 organisations set up by NHS England to operate as the key innovation arm of the NHS.

Across the country, we act as a bridge between health care providers, commissioners, academia and industry. By connecting these sectors, we help to build a pipeline of solutions for the NHS from research and product development through to implementation and commercialisation.

Locally we work in partnership with our regional health and care community and develop projects, programmes and initiatives that reflect the diversity and meet the needs of our local populations and health care challenges.

We understand the needs of our health systems and are well placed to broker innovative solutions, while collaborating with other Health Innovation Networks across England to take what works best and quickly spread it nationally.

At Health Innovation Yorkshire & Humber we believe in the power of new ideas to improve lives and our ambition is to work together with all our partners to make life better for the people in our region by improving their health and care and by creating a thriving economy for everyone.
