The National Horizon Scanning Centre (NHSC) website new features

The National Horizon Scanning Centre (NHSC) invites you to explore our enhanced website at www.nhsc-healthhorizons.org.uk.

The NHSC is funded by the UK National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) to provide key NHS decision makers with advance notice of new and emerging health technologies that may have a significant impact on patients and/or service delivery or costs. The scope of the horizon scanning activity includes drugs, medical devices and equipment, diagnostic tests and procedures, therapeutic interventions, and rehabilitation aids and therapy.


Information is provided to NHS decision makers in the form of short technology briefings (drugs) or news briefs (medical devices, diagnostics and other technology types).


The NHSC website features:

  • An enhanced search function so that you can find information on new and emerging health technologies more easily and quickly
  • Recent briefings and research projects highlighted on the homepage
  • Link to our Twitter feed


Please remember to save our web address to your favourites and sign up to our RSS feed so you can be alerted when new outputs are added to the website.


So, if you would like to know more about the work of the NHSC or how the NHSC could help you, please have a look at our website at www.nhsc-healthhorizons.org.uk or email us on
