          Abstract

          The Healthcare Technology Accelerator Facility (HTAF) is a non-profit initiative that will provide a unique base for the development of healthcare technology (HT), in acting as a UK ‘point-of-contact’ and expertise hub for all HT developmental stages. Too often, technology development occurs remotely from the clinical interface. As a result, its true potential is lost through issues such as lack of follow-on funding, poorly designed studies, limited appreciation of the health economics and user requirements, and poor industrial engagement. The fragmentation of team skills and knowledge leads to isolated development that is unlikely to succeed. By integrating physical and biomedical scientists and clinicians into the same environment, traditional barriers are removed, opportunities are created, and innovation is catalysed. The result will be the expediting of impact, from inception, to translation and commercialisation.
