Health Innovation Network South London

The Health Innovation Network (HIN) South London, the Academic Health Science Network for South London, is a partnership that connects academics, NHS commissioners and providers, local authorities, patients and patient groups, and industry in order to accelerate the spread and adoption of innovations and best practice, using evidence-based research across large populations.

Working as catalysts of change across health and social care economies, the HIN enables health improvements and economic growth. The HIN works closely with industry, academia and patients and the public to facilitate system wide change and improvement.

The HIN is a membership organisation focused on spread and adoption of lasting system-wide improvements in patient and population health, strengthening relationships and capitalising on teaching and research strengths across South London. Members include acute, specialist, community and mental health NHS trusts, primary care, clinical commissioning groups as well as social care partners.

The HIN work programmes focus on health priorities across clinical areas – diabetes, dementia, musculoskeletal, alcohol and cancer. The HIN cross-cutting innovation themes patient experience, patient safety, technology and information, education and training and wealth creation, support all of the work programmes to deliver service improvement to all members.
