Following discussions with leading stakeholders (including clinicians) last year, the following clinical pathways were chosen as areas where Surrey Heartlands could make the most initial improvements in health and care services. These discussions included both national and local evidence of best practice and where Surrey Heartlands was an outlier against other service models. These clinical pathways will form the initial focus of the work of the Surrey Heartlands Sustainability and Transformation Partnership, and will be developed alongside a Surrey Heartlands Academy; ensuring that clinical best practice and evidenced-based research is at the forefront of pathway design.
