Innovate with Dragons' Den


As a person your experience of services, provides you with insights and ideas in how we can innovate services and the care it provides. Through Dragons Den we can help your ideas be developed and implemented so they benefit patients and staff.

Do you have ideas which:

  • Need support to grow your ideas.

  • Require funding and our expertise to help your ideas gain adoption.

  • Involve service, clinicians or community organisations and want assistants to make them happen.

We regularly host an online hour-long workshop "Introduction to patient and people participation" for staff to find out the benefits of working alongside people in their ongoing service development and improvement.


The workshop has been designed with Side-by-Side patient representatives and delivered together with them. This involves facilitating discussion and sharing experiences of when they have helped services improve. The impact of people being involved truly helps the attendees see the impact of participation and supports them to take positive action to involve people in their research and improvement activities.  

Patients are the most important people in healthcare scenarios so their involvement in services and service provision is a shortcut to many rewarding features from their input to a saving of work hours.
