What we do
We work with partners across the health and care system to identify and spread innovative practice, build capability and support evaluation and learning.
We deliver national and regional programmes across the health and care system through collaboration, practical support and knowledge sharing.
We build capability by creating the opportunity for innovation and the conditions for continuous improvement.
We evaluate impact from improvement, demonstrating our ability to translate innovation into positive ongoing impact for our health and care system.
The nature of our place creates a specific set of complex challenges for our health and care systems.
At the heart of many of these challenges is health equity – delivering equitable health and care services and achieving equitable outcomes for the population.
We seek to improve population health across our region by spreading innovative practice to close gaps in access to care, quality of care, opportunity for a healthy life and agency in managing individual health.
Our work covers Somerset, Devon, and Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, taking in coastal, rural and urban areas and tackling the challenges associated with pockets of deep, long-standing and increasing deprivation, an aging population, children living in poverty, and a dispersed and sometimes isolated population.
