Generating Value from the National Health Service the Innovation Trusts

How the NHS is seeking to take best advantage of innovation and invention.

Dr Tony Bates was the NHS Intellectual Property Adviser from 1998 when the NHS Intellectual Property (IP) policy was introduced. He advised NHS Trusts and Primary Care Trusts on how NHS IP policy should be implemented to the maximum benefit of the NHS and patients. He was centrally involved in developing policy and produced the Department of Health Framework and Guidance, published in 2002, for the management of intellectual property. He was instrumental in changing the law to allow NHS bodies to take shareholdings in spin-out companies. He has spent the last few years creating the intellectual property management network of NHS Innovations Hubs.
