Our work focuses on supporting our region’s Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) and the delivery of the NHS Long Term Plan (LTP).

Our core functions of innovation and improvement underpin the impact we make for our stakeholders including NHS England, and the Office for Life Sciences.

Health and care partnerships that we work with include:

Our services include our experience, expertise and strategic advice in areas such as innovation scouting, joint bidding and project management, clinical advice and leadership, and analysis and evaluation support.

We also link in with Clinical and Professional Boards to address unmet health and wellbeing needs by matching these to proven solutions.

We were thrilled to be part of the successful bid for the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Applied Research Collaboration (ARCKSS). With £9m of funding awarded by the National Institute for Health Research, and a further £5m investment from local NHS trusts, local authorities and universities, the collaboration will ensure the learning from research is used more quickly and systematically to improve patient care.
