Our business plan for 2021-22 is out now.
Our refreshed business plan seeks to build on our strengths and achievements of the past eight years, and grow our offer to the Wessex region, across the south region and nationally.
We are committed to supporting our system partners in Wessex over the coming year on local priorities, and through delivery of the national programmes at a local level, working in collaboration with other AHSNs, rolling out high impact programmes of innovations and improvements in care and outcomes.
We will also continue to support industry partners and initiatives to boost local and national economic growth. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and significant pressures experienced by systems, the Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, and Dorset Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) are now implementing modified plans in response to the NHS Long Term Plan and the 2021/22 priorities and operational planning guidance. We will continue to work closely with the ICSs to support delivery of the system priorities and to align our activities, offer advice, support, and evaluation capability.
We seek to connect horizontally across research, industries, commissioners, providers, and users in Wessex, and network vertically between policy formulation, system design, operational frontline, and end-user experience. That role takes us across all parts of the NHS, into industry, local government, and other public agencies, into universities, charities, start-ups, and into funding streams. And across the system: from the frontline to dialogue with policy makers and regulators about refining system design to support adoption and spread of innovation. Networks which are open to, and embrace, the diverse perspectives of these stakeholders will, in turn, help the systems and members which they support to be open to the adoption and spread of innovation.
We believe these ambitions are reflected in our business plan and are indicative of a small organisation capable through our networks and capabilities of making a big impact.
