Submit an Innovation

The AHSN Network Innovation Exchange is designed to help innovators understand what the NHS challenges are and connect you to the help you need. The AHSNs are innovation brokers – we don’t deliver all the support ourselves – but we can help you to connect and find the right assistance for you. By helping to understand NHS needs and navigate the system we aim to transform patient care and deliver economic growth.

If you have an idea or innovation that you would like to discuss with Health Innovation Manchester complete this form. If you’ve already completed an AHSN engagement form with another AHSN, please feel free to send us this completed form to

NOTE: Impact of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) on our Innovation Nexus work

Due to the Coronavirus situation Health Innovation Manchester, in line with guidance from its funders and commissioner, is pivoting its activities to focus solely on supporting the current crisis. We are working nationally as part of the AHSN Network and a coordinated NHS response to identify and enable the implementation of technologies that respond to areas of highest priority action for COVID-19.

This means that all services including the support to industry via the Innovation Nexus business support team will be directed to supporting companies and innovators that are working on Coronavirus related products and services.

If you have an enquiry regarding a product or an innovation that is directly e.g. diagnostic, infection control, PPE, or indirectly e.g. remote monitoring of vulnerable patients/citizens, please submit your enquiry as normal. Any enquiries we receive that are not coronavirus related will be recorded and “warehoused” for follow up action once the current crisis has passed.
