Welcome to the application portal for the Regional Digital Health Accelerators, set up in collaboration between: DigitalHealth.London, East Midlands AHSN, Health Innovation Manchester, South West AHSN, and Kent Surrey and Sussex AHSN.

Innovative digital health businesses across the country can now join Regional Digital Health Accelerators which aim to speed up the adoption of technology in the NHS, relieve high pressure on services and empower patients to manage their health.

Building on the successes of the London-focused DigitalHealth.London Accelerator, three Regional Digital Health Accelerators have been set up by South West AHSN, East Midlands AHSN, Health Innovation Manchester, and Kent Surrey and Sussex AHSN.
To apply for one of the accelerators, please sign up for an account on this application portal and complete the online application form. The form includes questions about your company and the digital health products you have in development. You will be able to save it and return to it until the deadline.

Applications will be assessed according to business credibility, fit with NHS priorities, and the extent to which we believe the programme will make a positive impact on your business. Please read the FAQs on the webpage of the accelerator you would like to apply to.

The deadline for applications is 23:59 on Friday 13 April 2018.

If you are successful in the online application stage, you will be invited to interviews with a panel of experts from across the healthcare, commercial and technology sectors. These are likely to be held in June 2018.
