Surrey Heartlands Academy JW
What is our Clinical Academy?
In short the Academy is a virtual network that supports clinicians with the adoption and spread of innovation and best practice, by working beyond organisational boundaries to liberate solutions that will improve outcomes in health and care.
The Academy is also and importantly tasked with reducing unwarranted clinical variation, which means people in Surrey Heartlands can expect the same levels of high quality care and outcomes no matter where they live. We are delighted to be supported in this work by the Kent, Surrey, Sussex Academic Health Science Network.
The Academy has been set up to:
Facilitateclinical ownership of the challenge of tackling variation, embedded into day to day practice
Empower citizens: we will use information to help citizens be better informed to make decisions about their care and take personal responsibility for their health
Enable current, and future, pockets of innovation developed by Surrey Heartlands clinicians to grow and make a positive impact on the lives of the Surrey Heartlands population we serve
Spread best practice, test and evaluate current and new innovations (with a particular focus on digital) and support system leadership.
Help create and establish a culture and environment for generating ideas and making them happen for the benefit of the Surrey Heartlands population
