Colab Innovation Hub Banner

Our CO-LAB is the UK’s first community hospital-based Innovation Hub supported by the Integrated Care System (ICS).

Together, we can enable health and care staff to connect and explore the art of the possible, while also being a safe, welcoming and encouraging space for those who are starting to delve into how digital tech could work in their setting.

“This lab is very much intended to be a centre in which we can bring clinicians and local entrepreneurs together to try and focus on potential solutions for the health and care sector in the future but also importantly show young people about some of the opportunities that they can see around using new technologies so it’s a really really exciting place” - Mike Emery, Founding CIO

Our CO-LAB is here to support you and your digital technology projects.

If you would like to discuss how we can work together to use digital innovation to improve the health and care of patients, families and staff, please do contact the team on
