Intellectual Property Management at UHSM
Intellectual Property is the result of intellectual activity - it may be a novel method, idea or an invention. NHS staff are constantly finding new and better ways to do their work.
Such innovations may be prototype devices, designs, software, processes or documents to improve clinical practice, or new technologies arising from research. These may improve the way we do things and can generate income for the inventor and the Trust.
UHSM uses the North West Innovation Service, TrusTECH, to provide expert advice on Intellectual Property and help us further develop innovations.
