Paediatric Innovation Fellow

As an Oxfordshire based charity, Thinking of Oscar has had a long history of working closely with the paediatrics department at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. In collaboration with their innovation team TheHill, we have funded a first of a kind, specialised fellowship program to a paediatrician interested in exploring innovation within the children’s services.

The fellowship supports the development and/or adoption of new innovations within the paediatric department. These innovations could take the form of quality improvement projects, digital innovation, service evaluation or a new product adoption.


The Fellow’s role is to identify local needs that present innovation opportunities and explored technologies or approaches which would resolve the need. Where appropriate the technology options are guided through the innovation panel (as supported by TheHill team) to support the trialling and/or adoption of the innovation within Children’s and Neonates.
