The Northern Better Care Partnership brings together world-class universities, digitally-enabled NHS institutions and academic health science systems. It serves over 16 million people in the North where the rates of poverty, morbidity, premature mortality and poorer clinical outcomes are higher than in other regions.
The Partnership will initially focus on three projects towards better care for elderly people living with frailty. Each project will employ extensive, available data and advanced analytical techniques to gain actionable insights for optimising delivery of care. They will use early findings to expand the research and implementation, firstly across other Northern cities, in collaboration with the Northern Health Science Alliance and the four Academic Health Science Networks, and subsequently UK-wide.
