"There is always a better way..."


10 / 06 / 2014

The NHS is going through tough times and the need for innovation has never been greater. Increasing demand on services coupled with downward pressure on budgets makes developing new, cost-effective ways to meet the challenge of delivering high-quality care a priority. Not an easy ask. However, with greater flexibility and the ability to attract investment, the independent sector is often the source of outstanding innovation.

Earlier this year the NHS Partners Network ran a competition to find the best examples of innovation from the independent sector. We received entries spanning the breadth of healthcare and from a diverse range of providers.

This briefing highlights the top five entries as selected by our judges and demonstrates the benefit of believing there is a better way – and having both the freedom and the support to explore ways of finding it.
