Welcome to the first issue of our Surrey Heartlands Academy newsletter.  We’ll be producing this on a quarterly basis to keep you up to date with our work.

It’s an exciting time for the Academy as Surrey Heartlands continues to work towards becoming a more mature Integrated Care System.  As part of this, we have just announced a new executive team and I’m delighted to be working more closely with Sarah Parker in her new role as ICS Director of Transformation and The Academy.

We were very pleased to host a joint workshop with the Royal College of Physicians last month, where more than 70 people from across our system came together to discuss the future of outpatients and how this could be re-aligned for the modern day.  

We’ve also just launched our Surrey 500 Leadership programme, providing training for 500 people across the system. I look forward to seeing the first cohort start their training journey next month. And we have several more events planned over the next few months, so do read on to find out more, and do please join us at those which you feel would be most relevant.

Surrey Heartlands Academy Clinical Director
