Applications for the Digital Health London Accelerator opened on Monday 25 February, as part of efforts to increase NHS and patient access to cutting-edge technologies.

The DigitalHealth.London Accelerator is targeting innovative healthtech businesses, and inviting them to apply to receive help to develop and deploy digital solutions to some of the NHS’ most pressing challenges.

This is the fourth year the initiative has operated in London, where it began in 2015 in response to a challenge by the Mayor of London to make London a global hub for health and technology. The call comes on the back of the recent publication of the NHS Long Term Plan, which focuses on ways to ensure the NHS is “fit for the future,” including a push around digital technology. This priority is also echoed in the Topol Review, which was published earlier this month.
