Lunch&Learn: How to get your digital health innovation into the NHS

For our first Lunch&Learn of 2018, we are thrilled to be joined by Lawrence Petalidis - Head of Innovation and Impact for CW+, the Health Charity for Chelsea and Westminster NHS Foundation Trust.

Finding it hard to get your innovation into the NHS? Some people talk about the importance of matchmaking, others talk about lack of funding. Lawrence will share his expertise and advice from working as a NHS Navigator for the Digital Health.London Accelerator and how he helped 7 digital health projects get pilots, trials and contract with Chelsea and Westminster NHS Foundation Trust in 2016-2017.
