The Resilient Health Systems project aims to use robust research and evaluation methods to understand in-depth the changes introduced to the south east London health system due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Using a range of methods, researchers will capture documented and undocumented innovations, and understand the resilience capacities of the system through the lens of those who plan and deliver health and social care services. In so doing, the project will provide rapid evidence-based policy and practice recommendations to inform decision-making for the South East London Integrated Care System (SEL ICS). 

The long-term goal is a south east London health system that is more resilient and able and able to anticipate, withstand, adapt to, and recover from shocks and stressors. The project  is a joint collaboration between KHP Women and Children’s Health and SEL ICS.
