Our innovation priorities

We’re building a network of innovative organisations to help our members tackle the following four priorities for innovation.

Ageing Better: innovation that enables independent living, reduces social isolation and improves the management of multiple long-term conditions.

Healthy Lifestyles: innovation that tackles the underlying social determinants of health (alcohol misuse, smoking, physical inactivity, unhealthy diets and housing) that cause the majority of conditions and diseases.

Primary Care: innovation that improves diagnostics in primary care, supports development of self-care and improves the management of demand.

Urgent Care: innovation that improves the management, coordination and flow of patients into, through and out of urgent care settings.

Our priorities are informed by national policy, the priorities of our network members and the needs of the population in the South West.

If you’re interested in helping us tackle the challenges above, please contact a member of the Innovation team: info@swahsn.com.
