How do you get a hospital to build a Batcave?

15 Nov 2022
Theatre 1
Innovation in Surgery

Innovation is often a key strategic objective for most health systems, but how do you actually go about doing it? At Alder Hey Children’s Hospital they have been on a 10 year journey to build a thriving innovation system centred on a 1000sqm underground healthtech innovation centre “the batcave”. In this session Mr Iain Hennessey, founder, clinical director and paediatric surgeon, will tell the story about how they built their infrastructure and embedded innovation into the wider organisational culture.
