ITP 2019/20 is a competitive process designed to scale up adoption of innovations and technologies that have already proved their clinical effectiveness and are ready for nationwide spread. The ITP removes some of the financial and procurement barriers which can inhibit uptake at scale.

As well as financial and procurement support, the ITP programme offers successful applicants support from the Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs), who now have a clear objective to encourage uptake of ITP products.
