With the festive season upon us and 2017 drawing to a close, Scottish Health Innovations Ltd (SHIL) would like to thank you for your support over a very busy but rewarding year.

It has been an exciting year at SHIL. We launched our new website, part of our commitment to working with health professionals across Scotland and the provision of systematic, nationally supported route to develop ideas and innovations. This was bolstered by our first session at the annual NHS Scotland event promoting the innovative work already in action across our health service and the opportunities that exist to harness the talents of our workforce to drive further improvements in our health service. We strongly believe people are at the heart of innovation and those best placed to devise new ways of improving patient care are usually those working at the heart of our health services.

So we continue to work closely with all Health Boards across Scotland, support a varied events programme to engage with our stakeholders and roll out regular drop-in sessions to encourage new ideas and innovations. This has led to a range of projects now in development with inventors across NHS Scotland and we look forward to showcasing some of these in 2018.

We also built a range of new partnerships during 2017 including our exciting link-up with Product Forge to explore new approaches to innovation.

We are excited about our future – health innovation is high on the agenda and SHIL is uniquely positioned to build on the entrepreneurial talent within our health service as part of this transformation journey of our health service.

We look forward to working with all our partners through 2018 to drive forward an NHS at the forefront of medical advances.  

Best wishes for the festive season and a successful 2018.

The SHIL Team
