The Clinical Entrepreneur Programme is an NHS initiative, delivered by Anglia Ruskin University. It is the biggest entrepreneurial workforce development programme of its kind. Launched in 2016, the programme is open to both clinical and non-clinical NHS staff.
The programme aims are to:
- Allow entrepreneurs and creative thinkers to pursue their innovation without having to leave the health service.
- Support the healthcare workforce to develop and scale their most innovative ideas for the benefit of patients, staff and the wider NHS.
- Develop the skills, knowledge and experience needed to successfully develop and spread innovative solutions to the challenges facing the NHS.
- Provide a wider benefit to economic growth through inward investment in the health, social care and life science sectors.
