TeenTech NHS Innovation Challenge
Maybe you have an idea for a specific innovation in technology which could be used at home, in an ambulance, in A&E, on the hospital ward, in the operating theatre or in recovery?
How could you make NHS services work well for everyone?
How could better use of data, AI, and Machine Learning have a similar impact on healthcare?
If you look at other high-risk industries, such as aviation and cyber security, the use of technology and candid reporting has made major improvements.
Maybe you can envisage a completely new way to transform healthcare so that every patient, no matter what their age or social background, has access to the safest possible treatment with the best chance of success.
