Part of NHS England’s commitment to the Five Year Forward View, the Innovation and Technology Payment (ITP) 2019/20 aims to support the NHS to adopt innovative market-ready medical devices, diagnostics, digital platforms and technologies. 

The ITP aims to support the NHS in adopting innovation by removing some of the financial or procurement barriers which can inhibit uptake at scale. 

It is a competitive process designed to scale up adoption of innovations and technologies that have already proved their clinical effectiveness and are ready for nationwide spread. 

The ITP is looking to support medical devices, digital platforms and technologies. The programme is not suitable for pharmaceutical products or research projects. 

We aim to select a range of cost-effective innovations within our budgetary confines in order to have a wide-reaching impact on patient care, and maximise learning from the programme while fostering culture change. 

The ITP is specifically focused on low cost innovations which can deliver significant patient outcomes and savings to the NHS.
