We are the innovation partner for health and care organisations in Cheshire and Merseyside and Lancashire and South Cumbria. 

We directly support the two ICSs in the North West Coast in building cultures and capability for improvement and promoting the adoption and spread of innovation in line with system priorities.

Working across Lancashire and South Cumbria and Cheshire and Merseyside, we build and hold strategic relationships that enable us to articulate the needs of the system and identify opportunities for innovation. Working jointly with our partners, we help to deliver locally-agreed programmes and activities that support innovation adoption.
