We understand that the National Health Service Accelerator Fund has become a working title for a potential fund to support innovations in the NHS. However as the fund has not been launched or any money raised, there is no formal entity in place with this official title. Any proposal to launch the fund with NHS as part of its title would be subject to normal consideration under NHS brand rules.
