    • SecurAcath is a device to secure catheters, and can dramatically help reduce catheter dislodgements for patients with a peripherally inserted central catheter. SecurAcath can also help to reduce the time taken to care and treat dressing changes and also help to reduce infection risk for patients.
    • This type of catheter is normally used in people needing intravenous access for several weeks or months in both inpatient and outpatient settings and NICE estimate up to 120,000 people per year could be eligible

 

The ITP programme

The Innovation Technology programme was launched at the NHS Confederation conference by Simon Stevens on 15 June 2017 and as part of NHS England’s commitment to the Five Year Forward View, NHS England.

The aim of the ITP is to help deliver on the commitment detailed within the Five Year Forward View – creating the conditions and cultural change necessary for proven innovations to be adopted faster and more systematically through the NHS, and to deliver examples into practice for demonstrable patient and population benefit.

  • The ITP programme starts from 24th April 2018 to 31st March 2019
  • Builds on the Innovation and Technology Tariff (ITT) and aims to support the NHS in adopting innovation by removing financial or procurement barriers to uptake of innovative products or technologies
  • Is a competitive process to identify innovations and technologies that will offer the greatest quality and efficiency benefits with wider adoption

Simon Stevens, Chief Executive of NHS England, said: “From the very beginning the NHS has been at the forefront of driving innovation, as we celebrate the NHS’s 70th birthday the NHS continues to champion innovation. These technologies will improve patient safety and potentially reduce the need for invasive and expensive tests.”

Professor Tony Young, National Clinical Lead for Innovation at NHS England, said: “For new innovations to flourish and spread at scale access to funding is critical, by buying these four innovations centrally NHS England has removed the barriers to the spread of these innovations so patients can benefit faster.”
