Towards the end of last month we were delighted to receive a visit from Tony Lloyd MP who came to our offices to find out more about our work. Local press reported his visit and the comment he made about NTAC.
“We are hearing a great deal about innovation and how it represents the future for an improved NHS. However, innovation as a concept can feel a little intangible. What exactly does it mean and represent. By visiting NTAC I now have a far better understanding of what can be achieved and how innovation can benefit individual patients and the NHS as a whole.”
As previously blogged the team has been very busy finishing the iTAPP adoption and briefing packs all of which will be with the Department of Health soon.
The draft Intra-operative Fluid Management Adoption Pack is now being finalised as part of work to implement the Innovation Health and Wealth plans published late last year. My time is balanced between supporting the NTAC team and participating in a number of the national working groups. I am most looking forward to discussions about the future support mechanisms for improvements in the NHS and of course how new devices and diagnostics can be identified and adopted more rapidly and widely.
