The NHS England’s Clinical Entrepreneur programme will be open and welcoming applications from the 5th October 2021. Budding entrepreneurs can now apply for this ground-breaking programme that is helping bring innovations into the NHS to improve patient care.

The NHS Clinical Entrepreneur Programme, delivered by Anglia Ruskin University, is the biggest entrepreneurial workforce development programme of its kind. Open to all NHS staff, the programme aims toprovide the commercial skills, knowledge and experience needed to successfully develop and spread innovative solutions to the challenges facing the NHS. The curriculum covers all aspects of setting up and running a small business, including attracting investors, applying for funding, and ensuring appropriate corporate governance.  The programme provides dedicated sessions in how to build a start-up – and how to operate in this highly-charged environment – is delivered as a series of educational events attended by industry mentors.

 The programme aims to allow entrepreneurs to pursue their innovation without having to leave the health service, providing  a wider benefit to economic growth through inward investment in the health, social care and life science sectors. As such, the programme currently offers mentoring, networking, bespoke commercial education, customer matching, resources and development tools.
