Over 300 people attended the event at Lincolnshire Showground on 6 December 2018. Over 100 ideas were generated. The next stage of the process is to establish “solutions groups” that will co-design proposed solutions to go forward to a selection panel representing Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships and Integrated Care Systems from across the region.

Technology offers a significant contribution to the reduction of rural health inequalities.

The national centre recognises the opportunity both to disseminate examples of good practice in this context and to help develop the market for such activities further. Working with the Academic Health Science Network and Local Enterprise Partnerships we are committed to stimulating innovation in this context.

We plan to hold a national rural health innovation “sandpit” at the end of June 2018. This will be followed by a summit bringing together purchasers, investors and innovative businesses in late autumn 2018.
