Innovation at East Kent Hospitals

We in East Kent constantly strive to innovate – whether that takes the form of novel devices, smartphone apps to help patients or staff, or new and innovative pathways of care – and it is within the remit of the Research & Innovation department to provide facilitation, limited financial support and governance for those seeking to innovate.

The R&I Manager is the first point of contact for anyone in the Trust seeking advice on developing or exploiting an innovation.
