Lantum to join the 2017 NHS Innovation Accelerator


Lantum is thrilled to announce that it has been selected to join the 2017 NHS England  Innovation Accelerator (NIA).

The NIA supports the uptake and scaling of high-impact, evidence-based innovations across the NHS, and is an honourable stamp of approval for the Lantum portfolio.

Lantum is one of eleven innovations to be chosen via rigorous assessment to join the nationally-celebrated accelerator, each of which have been identified as offering solutions to key challenges in Primary Care, Urgent and Emergency Care, and Mental Health.

Melissa Morris, CEO of Lantum, says ‘I am delighted Lantum has been recognised as a rising star within the NHS. I will wear my badge of “NIA fellow” with pride. For five years we have worked hard to earn our reputation and to be awarded a place on this prestigious programme is a huge achievement. I am looking forward to working with the other fellows, sharing ideas, and paving the way to a bright future for Lantum, primary care users, and enabling NHS patient care.'

  • My Diabetes My Way: Low-cost, scalable, comprehensive online self-management platform for people with diabetes.
