Assurance and Governance:
A formal management and governance group oversees the methodology employed and the selection of new technology for testing. Formal buy in from NHS R&D offices and clinical leaders is vital to success, and is actively sought and managed. This is reflected in our streamlined contracting arrangements and clear position on intellectual property.
A platform for collaboration
The testbed is not a new healthcare organisation, but rather a platform for collaboration – between the NHS and industry.
