Put simply, ‘innovation’ means a new idea or a more effective device or process. In a health context, innovation may be linked to positive changes in quality, efficiency, productivity or enhanced patient/ customer experience.
We all know that healthcare delivery will be radically different in the years to come. At the Golden Jubilee Foundation, our aim is to continue to provide the high quality health services that the people of Scotland both expect and deserve.
Advances in medical technologies and treatments present us with unprecedented opportunities. Innovation must be at the heart of rising to this challenge. The Golden Jubilee Foundation aims to be at the cutting edge of healthcare innovation, helping our NHS stay at the forefront of research and delivery and ensuring that Scotland is leading work in discovering new ways of working.
Currently across the Golden Jubilee, new ideas are happening every day with an aim of improving care and services for patients across the country. These ideas can be at department or organisational level, small changes to existing processes, or a revolutionary new medical device.
