  • We are exploring how the health and care sector can understand, translate and adapt the best of COVID-19-related innovations and initiatives into everyday practice.
  • This partnership forms part of the NHS Confederation’s wider NHS Reset campaign which is seeking to contribute to debate on what the health and care system should look like in the aftermath of the pandemic.

A wealth of innovations and new ways of working have arisen in response to the coronavirus outbreak as leaders, clinicians and partners from all sectors have worked in novel ways to develop and deliver services under unprecedented circumstances. This has happened at a pace previously thought unimaginable.

The Health Foundation has teamed up with the NHS Confederation and the AHSN Network to explore how the health and care sector can work with staff, patients and the public to understand, translate and adapt the best of COVID-19-related innovations and initiatives into everyday practice – maintaining momentum, sharing what’s working and improving people’s care.

Forming part of the NHS Confederation’s NHS Reset campaign, this collaboration will also consider how the sector should collectively build on the rapid progress made to accelerate the reset and ongoing improvement of health and care planning and delivery.

Together we will focus on three areas:

  • What’s working well? Identifying and understanding what’s working for whom
  • The race to systematise service innovation: how to make the changes in practice and mindset sustainable
  • A spotlight on the wider system: how to ensure the focus is retained on the integration agenda and community, primary and social care

NHS Reset was launched in May 2020 and aims to recognise the sacrifices and achievements of the COVID-19 period, rebuild local systems and reset the way we plan, commission and deliver health and care.

Get involved

In the months ahead we’ll be sharing more information about how you can get involved.
