Innovation Exchange

In collaboration with UCLPartners, our Innovation Exchange aims to connect people working across the healthcare sector to share ideas, innovation solutions, projects and products, in order to improve patient care for residents of North East London.

The NHS and social care represent complex landscapes and can be daunting markets. However through the Innovation Exchange funded by the Office for Life Sciences, Care City is working closely with our East London health and care partners to identify common health and social care challenges and quickly bring people and organisations together to develop, test and spread high quality and high potential innovation. 

The East London health and care ecosystem faces a number of challenges. Care City has worked closely with leaders across the geography to focus on a number of priority areas, which also align with the vision set out within NHS England’s Long Term Plan

  • Long term conditions including self-care and management
  • Ageing and Frailty Technology
  • Dementia
  • Mental Health

Care City’s work focusses on getting the best technology to patients, faster, to improve care and we facilitate that through:

  • Working with partners to identify where technology can address key system challenges
  • Finding the best technologies to address these problems 
  • Supporting innovators to be public sector ready
  • Project management support for implementation and evaluation
  • Sustainability planning, looking how to scale and share learning more widely.


Supporting innovation and businesses

Do you have an idea for a product, technology or service that could benefit patients and the NHS? Or does your company already have a product that is ready to launch into the health and care sector, or already on the market?

Our partners, UCLPartners team of in-house experts provide bespoke advice, signposting and support for innovators and businesses with products and technologies at all stages – from an initial idea to products already on the market that are ready to scale up. Our aim is to identify and support innovations with the most potential to benefit patients and the NHS.

Developing your innovation idea

If you have an earlier-stage idea for a product or service and need support to help develop your idea and get it ready for the marketplace, then we would encourage you to contact one of the organisations below which will be better placed to help you develop your idea into a product that is ready for market.

These organisations will be able to help you find support in areas such as networking, research and evidence generation, seeking investment and intellectual property.

Scaling your innovation
