Proven and evidenced products ready for adoption and spread

We support innovative projects and initiatives which:

  • have potential to deliver major improvements to healthcare outcomes and patient experience
  • are not yet widely deployed or used across Kent Surrey and Sussex but have the potential to be spread across the region more widely and more quickly.

We're particularly interested in products and services which could deliver significant improvements in our priority areas:

 • efficiency (i.e. productivity) improvements
• "self care"(reducing reliance on healthcare resources)
• avoidable emergency admissions
• cardiovascular disease including renal
• care homes
• dementia.
