Feebris announced as an NHS Innovation Accelerator Fellow for 2021.
The NHS Innovation Accelerator (NIA) has announced the 12 innovators (‘Fellows’) and innovations selected to join its award-winning programme in 2021, and we are proud to report that Feebris is one of them. Led by our Partnerships Director, Sami Nur, Feebris will be supported over the next three years to scale across England for the benefit of NHS patients and staff.
Each innovation – and its representative Fellow – were selected through a robust, multi-stage assessment process involving a college of expert clinicians, patients and commercial leads drawn from a range of organisations including NHS England and NHS Improvement, NHSX, the Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs) and NICE. - NHS Innovation Accelerator.
The announcement marks the sixth cohort joining the NIA, which is an NHS England and NHS Improvement initiative delivered in partnership with England’s 15 AHSNs, hosted at UCLPartners. Since it launched in 2015, the NIA has supported the uptake and spread of 74 evidence-based innovations across more than 2,475 NHS sites. In recognition of the new cohort, Professor Stephen Powis, Chair of the NIA and National Medical Director for NHS England and NHS Improvement, said:
“After a year like no other for the NHS, the importance of innovation has never been more clear. From the way we deliver services to how we support the health and social care workforce, innovation has proven critical to ensuring we remain able to care for NHS patients and staff effectively and efficiently." - Professor Stephen Powis, Chair of the NIA.
