About this Event

Innovation Showcase: In the Community

“Taking out of the box thinking, out of the hospital”

“Each year, community health services have about 100 million patient contacts and account for around £10 billion of the NHS budget and one-fifth of the total NHS workforce. This diverse sector covers a wide range of services, from those targeted at people living with complex health and care needs – such as district nursing and palliative care – to health promotion services – such as school nursing and health visiting. Community services play a key role in keeping people well, treating and managing acute illness and long-term conditions, and supporting people to live independently in their own homes.”

Key to the delivery of support and services into the community is the partnership, interaction and integration with Acute Trusts, Third Sector providers and Social Care.

Innovation at South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust, doesn’t just happen within the hospital. Join the South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS FT Innovation team at the Innovation Showcase: In the Community. The event will include exciting innovations that will have benefit to patients in their community and demonstrate that bright ideas can come from many different places.

The event will bring together NHS staff and all stakeholders engaged in community health services including charities, companies, researchers and patient groups to learn about innovative initiatives in the community healthcare. It is open to anyone excited by the opportunities presented by innovative approaches to community healthcare and who is interested in developing collaborations and partnerships.

This event is supported by the Academic Health Science Network for the North East and North Cumbria and the European Regional Development Fund
