We work in partnership with our regional health and care community and develop projects, programmes and initiatives that reflect the diversity and meet the needs of our local populations and healthcare challenges. We look at four different things within our Innovation Exchange to help develop, test and spread proven innovation: • Defining NHS needs • Innovator support and signposting • Real world evaluation • Adoption and spread

Our workforce is a pivotal part of the NHS Long Term Plan (LTP). People are one of the NHS’s greatest strengths and it is essential they get the support they need to continue delivering the best possible care.

The Long Term Plan challenges the system to move from face-to- face outpatient appointments. There are digital opportunities including the redesign of outpatient services through virtual appointments, diagnostic tests and support tools for GPs, remote monitoring technology and local clinics.
