Scottish Health Innovations Ltd works in partnership with NHS Scotland to protect and develop new innovations that come from healthcare professionals.
By developing these ideas, SHIL creates new products and technologies that will improve patient care and generate income for NHS Scotland.
SHIL services include:
SHIL was set up in 2002 by NHS Scotland and Scottish Enterprise to provide this support to NHS innovation. It was recognised that there was a wealth of potential in the knowledge of NHS employees in terms of how to improve care and that there was no means of support out there to make the most of this.
Since SHIL came in to existence they have successfully developed many ideas and projects that have come from NHS staff. These vary from basic ideas to more complicated research projects. If you work in healthcare and you have an idea for a new product SHIL wants to hear from you.
SHIL also offers commercial opportunities to organisations with manufacturing, distribution and research capabilities. Please explore our commercial opportunities section for more information.
