Innovation and improvement is one of the key enablers that will support the achievement of our collective ambition to improve health care services for the 2.6 million people living across our area.
It is widely known that doing more of the same will not meet the challenges of the future and there is a need now, more than ever before, to maximise the value from innovation and improvement. You can see examples of this in the work we are doing to prevent stroke and heart disease. As a partnership we know that we need to develop a new and more receptive culture to working in partnership with industry, universities and public and voluntary community partners, so that together we can develop innovative ways to meet the challenges we face whilst importantly improving the health and wellbeing of everyone.
Our work programme also aims to develop a closer partnership with the Yorkshire and Humber Academic Health Science Network to share national and local good practice, innovation and learning.
