The Welsh Healthcare Innovation Pipeline
Cardiff Metropolitan University
MetadataShow full item record
This investigation explored the Welsh Life Sciences (LS) sector through a Grounded Theory approach. Semi-structured interviews with senior stakeholders from academia, government, industry, NHS Wales, third sector and professional institutions were conducted. A conceptual framework was developed to help understand the complex interactions within the Welsh LS sector. Gap analysis was systematically applied to the data in order to design a model for potential interventions to positively influence the Welsh LS sector. The model was then compared with current and forthcoming policy and policy recommendations to produce an integrated intervention termed the “Welsh Healthcare Innovation Pipeline” (WHIP), to result in the adoption of new innovation within NHS Wales through sourcing, trialling, assessing, procuring, and adopting healthcare innovations through an integrated framework. The proposal is that the WHIP would be adopted across Wales after being piloted sub-regionally within the West Wales region.
