Innovation in the NHS

Innovation : Department of Health : "Innovation Week at the end of April is celebrating and promoting a package of tangible measures that demonstrate the commitment to create a forward looking and innovative health service. Creating an environment where innovation can flourish is a key enabler to achieve this future ambition and the profound effect on patients’ outcomes and experience of the NHS."

I am so used to being critical of Government that it is refreshing to be able to agree with something. Innovation is what political and economic life is all about. We need innovation to come up from the grass roots, instead of being handed down from on high as "Policy" generated by managerialisationologists.

We must hope it all comes to something.

Yes, but I think we need to rethink how we enable innovation...
