Innovation Scouts 

The Innovation Agency has a crucial role in the spread and adoption of innovation across the region but we can't do it alone! We organise a community of Innovation Scouts to support a culture of innovation in health care. 

This is an opportunity for a senior clinician or manager to work with like-minded individuals  to address the challenges in adopting innovative practices and technologies. It helps us to provide a consistent and collaborative approach to rolling out innovations and service improvements across the North West Coast.


The role of an Innovation Scout is to encourage a culture of innovation within their organisations and to proactively encourage the adoption of evidence-based innovations.


There is a comprehensive support package which includes workshops, bespoke support, coaching and training.
