Working with Healthcare Providers

Here at Health Innovation Yorkshire & Humber we collaborate with clinicians and other frontline staff to encourage and support new ways of working that make care safer and better for patients.

We work hard with our stakeholders to reduce costs and improve efficiencies in health care through our innovative programmes.

We are embedded in our regional health and care community, understanding the system and patient needs on the ground. We develop projects, programmes and initiatives that reflect the diversity of our local populations and healthcare challenges.

The needs of citizens are at the heart of our work and we are committed to improving the health outcomes of people living across Yorkshire and the Humber. We ensure that new products and services are evaluated and supported by evidence, designed in consultation and collaboration with patients and the public and implemented at pace and scale.

Dr Yvette Oade, Chief Medical Officer, Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

The patients will get seen and treated in primary care, they will avoid a referral up to the hospital, they will potentially avoid unnecessary investigations in secondary care, basically the right patient will go to the right place for the right reasons

Dr Iain Chalmers, GP, Weelsby View Practice

If we improve the information that pharmacists get, we can improve patient care and pick up any errors before patients are readmitted to hospital again.
