Event Information




Innovation happens every day at County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust  (CDDFT) and we want to capture and celebrate new ways of improving patient outcomes and reducing waste. So come along to CDDFT’s first Innovation Day and learn more about the world of innovation!

Whether you already have an idea or know what needs changing, but don’t know how, then this day is for you!

From novices to experts, the day will provide you with the inspiration and support you need to identify new and unmet needs and solutions, so we can work together to transform patient care through innovation.

This event is supported by the Academic Health Science Network for the North East and North Cumbria.

The event includes:

  • Guest Speakers including Health Call, The Great North Care Record, Academic Health Science Network and many more.
  • Staff Innovation Showcases
  • Innovation Award
  • Representatives from local industry, regional trusts and academia

As part of the event, we are holding an Innovation Competition and staff members from throughout the organisation are encouraged to submit their innovative projects. Shortlisted individuals and teams will be invited to showcase their projects at the event and the winner will receive a prize. If you are a staff member at CDDFT and would like to enter, please send your entry to [email protected]
