Year in review highlights partnership achievements

Our new interactive Year in Review for 2016/17 shows that we are continuing to build on the legacy of the strong and resilient partnership established when UCLPartners was first created.  Partnership working, as the guiding star and the foundation of what we do, is enabling us to support partners to work together to make a real and lasting difference to people’s lives.

We have continued to add value to our partners and the people they serve across parts of London, Essex, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire by focusing on areas where together we can achieve the most impact. This has involved working to align our activities with local and national priorities, whilst continuing to work with our regional and national partners to contribute to the wider health and care agenda.

The full review can be found on the UCLPartners website, including videos and some case studies.  It highlights a mix of achievements made in partnership, including:

  • 469 organisations are now using innovative products, services and devices with the support of the nationally renowned NHS Innovation Accelerator, hosted by UCLPartners
  • Our work on atrial fibrillation is estimated to prevent 360 strokes over five years in the region
  • All three of DigitalHealth.London’s digital pioneer awards were scooped by partners for their innovation in digital health
  • Since 2013 our training programmes in physical and mental health, dementia, end of life care and genomics have reached almost 60,000 colleagues in the partnership
  • £170m awarded to the four Biomedical Research Centres within the UCLPartners’ region, representing 20% of UK funding for health research
  • One third of clinical commissioning groups in the country are now using i-THRIVE; a model for improving services for children and young people with mental illness

The successes of the past year highlight the increasing importance of partnership working in the ever-changing health and care system and these have only been achieved through the ongoing commitment of staff across the region
