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.
