Dear <<First Name>>,

This month our flagship Accelerator programme was listed as one of Sifted’s best healthtech accelerators in Europe, as the only UK entry. Backed up by the testimonies of our innovators, we are delighted to receive recognition of our work supporting the NHS to work more effectively with digital solutions. We’re also enjoying a moment of reflection, as we prepare to interview companies hoping to make it onto the next intake of our the programme.

In other areas of our work, we are gearing up to announce the names of the companies we will work with through the UK Israel Dangoor Health Initiative – watch this space.

We’ve just finished our second day of working with our NHS Digital Pioneer Fellows, which was a fantastic opportunity to learn from experts on evaluation, design thinking, and patient involvement. Our thanks to Imperial College Health Partners, FutureGov, the Health Innovation Network, and Cerner.

This month we’ve got plenty of other news to share with you below, including a unique opportunity to join our Accelerator's team as interim Programme Director for a one-year maternity cover. The person will lead and develop the programme’s offering during its fourth year, and help develop its strategic vision for the fifth. We invite applications by 5th June. Please pass on the opportunity if you know anyone who may be suitable, and good luck if you choose to apply.
