SPARK INNOVATION APPLICATION FORM

The Spark Innovation Programme is a frontline staff-led initiative that seeks to support, promote and recognise innovation amongst healthcare staff. We recognise that frontline staff are best placed to identify key problems faced by service users and care providers alike, and implement solutions to those problems. If you have an idea, please apply through one of our initiatives. We’d love to hear from you!
