Final chance to register for Accelerator launch, Chelsea and Westminster trials mental health app for youngsters, LIVI's new contract serves 1.85M patients
Dear <<First Name>>,

If you're just returning from your summer break, welcome back!

We've been working hard behind the scenes this summer, and are now in the final stretch of countdown to our DigitalHealth.London Accelerator launch event on 9 September, which will introduce the next set of companies we will work with over the next year to help transform the way the NHS delivers services. We’re almost at capacity, so if you are an NHS decision-maker, and haven’t yet applied for your ticket, make sure you do in the next few days to secure a spot.
For companies looking for funding, the deadline for our RYSE Digital Health Call is today at 23:59, make sure you hit “send” on your application! Alongside up to £5M in equity funding, you could also secure a bootcamp tailored to getting ready for the NHS, monthly 1:1s, access to partners, and support with evidence generation.

In case you missed it last month, we have just published our first-ever impact report. We're delighted to share what we've been working on over the last three years, and are incredibly proud of what we've achieved so far. If you haven't yet read it, take a look to see how we've helped the NHS save over £22M through our Accelerator programme, for example.
