What is the Catalyst?


The Catalyst stimulates collaboration between NHS Boards, Integrated Joint Boards and Innovators on priority areas of need where solutions to operational delivery problems are not presently available or affordable in Scotland.  These can be services, products or processes that would increase productivity in health and social care and/or lead to better outcomes.


Who Leads the Catalyst?


The Catalyst is managed by the Test Bed Governance Group which oversees innovation activity in health and social care in Scotland.  It is co-chaired by an SME Chief Executive and NHS Board Innovation Lead.


The national Innovation Leadership Group chaired by the Chief Scientist will oversee the Catalyst.
