Select Stadium, Lowerhouse Lane, Widnes, Cheshire
9:30am to 12:10pm

In March 2015, NHS England and HM Government launched the Test Bed programme to identify 5/6 Test Beds nationally. The Test Bed programme aims to identify and promote high value innovations that produce significant health improvements at the same or less cost than existing practice.

 

Partners across Cheshire and Merseyside are working together to tackle High Blood Pressure and Atrial Fibrillation through a systems approach, underpinned by a cross sector blood pressure strategy, and overseen by a sub-regional Blood Pressure Partnership Board. The strategy adopts a phased approach and is based on international best practice (from Canada), national recommendations (from PHE and NICE), and local insight and stakeholder engagement.

 

In June 2015, Champs Public Health Collaborative, the North West Academic Health Science Network, Public Health England and the Strategic Clinical Network submitted an expression of interest that was submitted to the Test Bed programme, outlining the scope that technology could bring in optimising identification, early detection and management of Hypertension and Atrial Fibrillation in Cheshire and Merseyside.  We have now been invited to submit a formal application by 4th November to access between £3.5 – 5 million to support implementation of the project (should we be successful).

Aims

We want to take the opportunity to allow stakeholders to interact with the “Innovators” and look at what will work well for each local area.

The event will allow stakeholders to understand the test bed process and what the companies/”innovators” are bringing to the bid. We are mindful that as this is a sub-regional bid, we need to move this forward together; however different solutions may be required in different areas.

 

  • To get commitment and engagement from CCGs, clinical colleagues and public health with the Cheshire & Merseyside Test Bed Application
  • Allow Companies/Innovators to formally outline their offer.
  • Allow opportunities for clinicians and public health colleagues to engage with companies.
  • To inform the selection process in finalising the particular innovators.

 

Who should attend?

Innovators’, Clinicians, Directors of Public Health, Local Authority colleagues (Public Health Consultants/Health Care Leads)
