Four innovation hubs to be established as part of the Health Foundation’s programme to improve the adoption of health care improvements

23 June 2021

Four areas have been selected by the Health Foundation to be part of its new programme supporting health care providers to create the conditions that will enable faster and more effective uptake of innovations and improvements.

The Adopting Innovation programme is supporting four innovation hubs with funding of up to £475,000 each for two and a half years.

The hubs will act as centres of expertise and support within provider organisations to help them, and their local health systems, become better adopters of innovation. In doing this, health care organisations create long-lasting impact for patients and staff.

The hubs will build knowledge, skills and confidence in provider organisations and local systems, and share wider learning on the organisational conditions that support the effective uptake of innovation.

The areas are:

  • Bradford and Craven Innovation Hub This Hub will focus on ageing well, and in particular anticipatory care, enhanced health in care homes, and urgent community response – as part of efforts to address the increasing health inequalities affecting the communities in Bradford and Craven.
  • Dorset Innovation Hub This Hub will focus on supporting proven innovations and understanding their impact in the local context before they are scaled up, while ensuring that the sustainability of innovations is fully understood and maintained.
  • Manchester Innovation Hub Led by Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, this Hub aims to improve health outcomes for the diverse population the Trust serves, using digital as the initial exemplar.
