Anglia Ruskin University is working with NHS England to deliver the Clinical Entrepreneur Programme, which supports NHS staff to develop and scale-up their most innovative ideas.

Founded in 2016 by Professor Tony Young OBE, a practising NHS surgeon and Director of Medical Innovation at ARU, the Clinical Entrepreneur Programme has become the world’s largest workforce development programme for healthcare professionals. It is open to all clinical professionals in the NHS.
