Health board member and retired cardiologist Clyde Wade said hospital staff should be encouraged to be innovative.

Waikato health bosses will use a Dragons’ Den format to help unearth innovative ideas among its staff.

The concept is borrowed from a television reality series in which entrepreneurs pitch their business ideas to a panel of potential investors.

Under the Waikato DHB initiative, staff will present a 10-minute ideas pitch to a panel for funding and resources.

The DHB will make $10,000 of funding available for staff initiatives each month.
