Never has there been a more urgent time to accelerate new ideas and innovations. Coronavirus (COVID-19) has led to an unprecedented change in the NHS. Scottish Health Innovations Ltd (SHIL) is committed to harnessing the knowledge and expertise of health and social care professionals across Scotland to develop innovative solutions in response to the crisis.

If you have an idea please submit below. At this time we will prioritise ideas and innovations relating to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) response, but please do continue to submit other ideas for review by our Innovation Team.

If you have selected one of the “External Inventor” options please be aware that SHIL primarily exists to support innovations created by NHS Scotland staff. SHIL can work with, and fund, non-NHS inventors only if there is a potential for an NHS Scotland board to benefit financially from commercialisation of an innovation. In practice this means that non-NHS inventors must either fully assign the rights to their idea to a health board OR be willing to work in collaboration with health board staff to create some new jointly-owned intellectual property.

See www.shil.co.uk/who-we-work-with for more details.
