Within the Devon system we recognise the vital role that innovation plays in our health and care system. Learning from our work with the South West AHSN to date has created a mutual appetite to work in further partnership as a system and across the region – creating the optimal conditions for joint working.”

What we do
Finding and connecting innovators to health and care systems
As the one stop shop for innovation, we help innovators and health and care professionals to collaborate, matching new ideas to local system priorities and supporting innovators with advice and expertise across the innovation pathway.
Developing, testing and evaluating innovation in the real world
We work with innovators and health and care professionals to help them shape and evolve an idea to tackle a complex problem. We test and evaluate solutions and share knowledge to provide rapid, actionable insights that inform improvements and build a case for scaling innovative practice.
We work with our partners to create capacity and build capability in the health and care system to enable the adoption and spread of innovation. We support innovators to navigate the NHS, facilitating research and development as well as enabling access to crucial funding to implement innovative solutions to challenges in health and care.
