**NOW CLOSED** Deadline for the NHS Clinical Entrepreneur Programme Extended


The NHS Clinical Entrepreneur Programme (CEP) have been approached by several applicants asking for a deadline extension due to clinical and other commitments. They understand how busy you are working in the NHS, therefore have decided to extend the application deadline to 11pm on Sunday 6th November 2022.

The Programme is delivered by Anglia Ruskin University, and part of the NHS Accelerated Access Collaborative (AAC) which brings together industry, government, regulators, patients and the NHS to remove barriers and accelerate the introduction of new ground-breaking treatments and diagnostics which have the potential to transform care.

The curriculum covers all aspects of setting up and running a small business or being an entrepreneur, including attracting investors, applying for funding, communications, and legal and regulatory considerations.

Participants will receive guidance on how to build and run a start-up business in this highly charged environment through a series of educational events with industry mentors.

So, if you are a budding entrepreneur, innovator or creative thinker there is still time to apply to this free, ground-breaking workforce development programme that is helping bring innovations into the NHS.

If you are a Health and Social Care Northern Ireland staff member, a student studying for a healthcare degree or a post graduate student in any discipline related to health innovation (including health data, bio-engineering etc)  we encourage you to apply for this exceptional opportunity.

Invest NI has also committed funding to support healthcare professionals working in Northern Ireland to participate in the programme for three years, up to 31 March 2026.
