NHS Market Access Accelerator 2021

The team at TheHill, based at Oxford University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, offers extensive support for entrepreneurs through our Market Access Accelerator. We turn ideas into reality, creating a flourishing ecosystem where SMEs and entrepreneurs thrive. We bring digital technology and new innovations to the National Health System by working with NHS Trusts, universities, digital developers, innovators and investors. Breakthrough innovation, which catalyses commercial and impactful technological solutions in healthcare, is our focus. Whether the approaches we enable are ideas from within the NHS, or from external companies, all of them seek to make the NHS more efficient and effective, support people and benefit patients.



Interested in applying?
For TheHill 2021 NHS Market Access Accelerator, we are looking for inspiring digital health innovative companies who are addressing real issues in healthcare. Companies in both earlier stage and growth stage cohorts are invited to apply. We aim to help these companies scale and to commercialise.

The earlier stage cohort will include start-ups that have an idea, concept or early prototype and need help to refine the business model and determine their value proposition for clinicians and the NHS.

The growth stage cohort companies would be those who have a beta product with regulatory approval (or no need for it) and ready to set up a pilot, service evaluation or first sale.

  • 1:1 Mentoring Support
