Our innovation priorities

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

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.
