Part of NHS England’s commitment to the Five Year Forward View and the Long Term Plan, 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.
The ITP is specifically focused on low cost innovations which can deliver significant patient outcomes and savings to the NHS.
