The Service Improvement and Innovation Hub guides healthcare scientists through the process of making a service improvement and developing an innovation by outlining the key milestones involved and providing handy tips and resources at every step of the way.

Healthcare scientists are often at the forefront of research and innovation within the NHS for the benefit of patients and helping the long-term sustainability of the NHS.  Taking an idea and making it into a service improvement and innovation involves a range of activities such as producing a convincing business case, getting engagement from many different stakeholders, careful project management and obtaining funding.

The Manchester Academy for Healthcare Scientist Education (MAHSE) have designed an interactive Roadmap to enable Healthcare Scientists to navigate their way through the most crucial steps in the innovation process, ensuring that they are equipped with all the essential knowledge and skills to bring their ideas to fruition and allowing them to carry out their projects with confidence.
