Accessible & Sustainable Innovation
Thrilled to be working at King’s College London this week on the Healthcare System Design Program with a fantastic group of engineering students.
Within the NHS Engineers usually specialise in a branch of engineering such as electrical, mechanical, building services or biomedical, for example.
In these roles engineers have a direct connection with problems and challenges facing the NHS today. But how often are these engineers involved in the process of innovation in healthcare? What happens when you give engineers a voice and space to be heard? There are over
Our workshop, designed and delivered with Helen Meese was designed to stimulate ideas and generate solutions to some of the biggest challenges in healthcare.
We asked our participants to consider the Hospital Discharge process. We asked what happens when problems can be approached without restrictions, when everyone has a seat at the table. The results were outstanding. There are many roles in the NHS, including medical engineering, the process of checking medical equipment to make sure it’s working properly and is safe to use. a hands on role with medical devices. As a clinical scientist you can specialise in medical device risk management and governance where the role will be more focused on the effective management of equipment, for example ensuring equipment is replaced in a timely fashion and that risks associated with the use of equipment are minimised. Both roles complement each other and collectively contribute to patient health and wellbeing.
Our commitment is to create value that remains within the organisations we work with. To equip everyone with tools and resources that they can apply to every situation, to drive inclusive engagement and value driven solutions.
