Clinical innovation

Our clinical innovation is driven by curiosity, creativity and a passion for meeting the needs of healthcare professionals and industry.

We believe that true clinical innovation is about creating something unique that changes the face of healthcare.

We are extremely proud of our close partnerships with both the NHS and healthcare industry.

In particular, the importance of clinical innovation in bringing about patient, health, economic and societal benefit is recognised by both the University and Cardiff and Vale University Health Board.

As the largest organisations of our type in Wales we are committed to work together with a unity of purpose to bring to bear our combined extensive expertise and resources to improve the health of their local and wider communities and beyond.

We play a key role in supporting this initiative through our network of academic and clinical colleagues. Crucially, we work with colleagues in the other Welsh Health Boards to form partnerships that result in development of innovations that benefit patients throughout Wales.

Those with a passion for innovation are encouraged and supported by being given the time and resources necessary to carry out their work.

We are a proud member of MediWales. Founded in 1992, it is the life science network and representative body for Wales which provides advice, support, business opportunities and promotes collaborations for the life science and health technology community in Wales.
