Lancashire and South Cumbria COVID research
2nd July 2020
The ICS System Leaders Executive is calling on partners throughout our local health and care system to work together to collate learning about the response to COVID-19 in what is our region’s largest collaborative learning project.
Lancashire and South Cumbria COVID Research is a truly regional research project to capture, analyse and move positive learning about our COVID experiences into tangible service enhancements, improving patient and staff outcomes.
The project is being undertaken by SEED Health Alliance, comprising our four regional universities – the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan), Edge Hill University, Lancaster University and the University of Cumbria – and health and care partners across Lancashire and South Cumbria. It will also be more widely supported by the ARC. We are also working with national and international partners, the Innovation Agency and the Advisory Board, to bring wider learning to Lancashire and South Cumbria.
We are asking partners from hospital trusts, CCGs, local authorities, ICP/MCPs, voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise sector and local people – through our partners, Healthwatch Together – to tell us about the positive lessons from COVID-19 so that we can use them for future health and care transformation. This work may be complementary to local learning in your organisation, so we ask that you feed in learning to us so we can work better as a region.
