We help to turn innovation ideas into practice at a local level.  We work in partnership with organisations across our geography, co-designing programmes to meet the needs of local populations.

Our programmes take the unique approach of bringing together leading clinical and academic experts. We are rigorous in our assessment of patient and population level impacts and know that effective change and quality improvement must be demand led, clinically owned and evidence based.

Our support to the local system uses a facilitative, project based approach to support improvements for whole populations based on locality models. We build strong relationships with our partners and work collaboratively to help shape new models of care, build capability and capacity, and improve service delivery, care and outcomes for patients. Our portfolio of programmes and projects focuses on national and local priorities and we are building a suite of resources that can be used widely to support new care models. We are working closely with the Sustainability and Transformation Planning teams across our partnership to ensure we support the delivery of their priority areas.
