Innovation and adoption

 

Meridian is a pioneering interactive platform for anyone to share their innovations and ideas, build groups and networks and make contact with people whose innovations could change healthcare in the West Midlands. The website will support the adoption of good practice in health and social care and share lessons learned from across the sector. Users – including people from the NHS, academia, industry and the third sector – are able to submit their ideas so that others can comment, suggest ways in which it may be improved and vote for innovations that are good for the region to support and worthy of further development. Alternatively, users can respond to campaigns, where there has been a specific healthcare need identified in the West Midlands which may be solved through an existing or new innovation. Organisations who are part of the WMAHSN’s enhanced membership scheme will get access to even more features and benefits of Meridian.

 

Neil’s role is to identify and support beneficial innovations that can be spread quickly across the region; particularly in the areas of Digital and Mental Health. Working alongside NHS, industry, academic and patient organisations, he fosters collaborative partnerships and helps innovators and adopters to access support and funding to drive health improvement and economic benefits to the region. Following a 10 year management career in the leisure and hospitality industry, Neil worked in the NHS for 19 years. He was the manager of one of England’s first GP Commissioning Groups, and subsequently CEO of an NHS Primary Care Group in Birmingham. He went on to establish and lead the Whole Systems Programme for NHS Midlands and East of England, which oversaw a range of innovative IT-enabled service transformations involving primary and secondary care within the NHS and the private sector.
