Think big, start small, scale fast: New report from Leeds Academic Health Partnership

Innovation in health and care is set to take a dynamic new pace and scale across Leeds and the City Region, according to a new report from Leeds Academic Health Partnership,

Think big, start small, scale fast.

The pandemic has hit people from the city's most deprived areas the hardest, along with those from black and minority ethnicities, those in low paid or low skilled jobs, the elderly and those with underlying health conditions. The need for innovation and realising its benefits for local people by reducing health inequalities and driving economic growth, has intensified.

The Partnership started small and, with just a tiny team at its core, governed by our most senior leaders, the collective task was to bring experts together across the city to solve some of its hardest health and care challenges. To think big.

Today, with huge strides forward, we are now starting to benefit from innovative programmes and transformational change across the city. Read the report in full.
