REMINDER: The Innovative Devices Access Pathway closes 29 October

By October 20, 2023No Comments

We would like to remind members that the The Innovative Devices Access Pathway (IDAP) closes on 29 October, so get your applications in soon!

The IDAP pilot is an initiative to bring new technologies and solutions to the National Health Service (NHS) to help with medical needs that are not currently being met.

The aim of IDAP is to enable and improve patient access to innovative and transformative medical devices by providing an integrated and enhanced regulatory and access pathway to developers.

The aim of the pilot is to test the main elements of the pathway and to provide informative learning and feedback that helps to build the future IDAP.

The IDAP is open to UK and international commercial and non-commercial developers with new health technology solutions.

Successful applicants will receive non-financial support from a team of experts to develop a product specific Target Development Profile (TDP) roadmap. The TDP roadmap will define Regulatory and Access touchpoints across the product development, which could include;

  • quality management system support
  • system navigation advice
  • a fast-tracked clinical investigation
  • joint scientific advice with partners
  • support with Health Technology Assessments (HTA) for product realisation and adoption
  • safe-harbour meetings to discuss NHS adoption
  • exceptional use authorisation granted by the MHRA, provided necessary safety standards are met.

To join the program, you need to complete the IDAP pilot application via GovForms.

You must complete the form in one session as progress cannot be saved. To prepare evidence in advance, you can download a template of the form.
