The work of the Surrey Heartlands Academy is focused on these areas:
Clinical and Citizen Engagement
Innovation and Research
Our work is divided into nine project areas:
Setting system-wide outcomes for clinical work streams. This has been completed for Cardiovascular Disease with Diabetes, Mental Health and Cancer underway
Developing a clinical engagement model, developing Clinical Reference Groups to support Surrey Heartlands’ priorities, piloting a Clinical Workforce Ambassador approach with work streams and engaging with the wider health and care workforce
Developing the Surrey Office of Data Analytics, a virtual team from across the system enabling information sharing to drive transformational change. This team delivers the Hackathon events examining how data can be better used to identify and target specific groups of citizens for health and care improvement. The first of these was for Cardiovascular disease; the second is for Primary Care Homes, with the final one on Children’s Services
Working with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement to develop a quality improvement system that will ensure the organisations within the partnership work together as a system to provide sustainable high quality health and care for citizens
Organising the Surrey Expo events to bring together the best of industry and health and social care to discuss how to drive innovation through transformation work and to showcase improvement and innovation across Surrey Heartlands.
Creating and agreeing a strategic vision
