How to develop your idea

Once you have your idea and have taken appropriate initial steps to protect it, you will need to establish what it's true potential is, whether it is unique and offers real benefits over existing products or procedures and what you need to do to turn your idea into reality .  This is where working with NHS Innovations South West can really help you. 

Whether it is with one of our Business Development Managers or a member of our Trust Innovation Leader team, we will take a proven, structured approach to help you establish the way forward.  We can get clinical advice and peer review, find an appropriate partner for prototyping, assist with protecting the intellectual property and get appropriate regulatory advice. Where appropriate we will also advise you on the best opportunities for obtaining support funding and ultimately can help broker a commercial licensing agreement with a suitable commercial partner.
