Integrated Care Systems Research and Innovation Workshop

As the region continues to progress the development of its Integrated Care Systems (ICSs), particularly their health inequalities priorities, MI Health is convening a series of events on behalf of the Midlands Health Inequalities Policy Commission. The aim is to discuss the critical role that research and innovation plays in this. Research is a core part of an innovative and forward-thinking health and care system and learning from the pandemic shows that embedding research within the NHS is achievable and delivers both for patients as well as for the NHS.

Within this context, and in conjunction with key regional stakeholders, we are creating an opportunity to come together to explore how ICSs, with their wider partners, can further consider research and innovation as a key element of planning, developing, and improving services.

To kick-start we are convening two workshops in June and September, to take account of the evolving process of ICS Board development. To register interest in attending the September meeting contact Alex Archibald.
