KSS Digital Health Accelerator launches!

ORANGE_KSS AHSN Logo RGBDigital health businesses are invited to apply to join the new Kent Surrey Sussex Digital Health Accelerator which will address some of the most urgent challenges facing health and social care.


Digital health businesses from across the country are invited to apply to join a new Kent Surrey Sussex Digital Health Accelerator. It’s been launched to help develop and deploy digital solutions to some of the most pressing challenges facing the NHS.

The new programme will work with local companies to match their products to NHS needs, and is based on the existing DigitalHealth.London Accelerator model. The London accelerator has successfully grown technologies such as a smartphone app that slashes A&E waiting times, a digital lifestyle management platform that can reverse type 2 diabetes, and a “USB port for the body” that can host a bionic limb.

The Kent Surrey Sussex accelerator is looking for a similarly wide range of innovative products.

Successful companies will receive:

  • One-to-one support from a designated “NHS Navigator”
  • Specialist training
  • Support with product development
  • Opportunities to meet experts from business, clinical, and government backgrounds
  • Regular opportunities to showcase their products with NHS decision-makers and influencers

If you would like to apply, you should register on the online portal and complete the application form, which includes questions about the company and the digital health products it has in development.

Register and apply

The deadline is 13 April at 23:59, and the programme is scheduled to commence in late Summer 2018.

Applications will be assessed according to business credibility, fit with NHS priorities, and the extent to which the programme will make a positive impact on the company.

We aim to notify all applicants of their success at the online stage by late May. Applicants successful here will be invited to an interview with a panel of experts from across the healthcare, commercial, and technology sectors.
