Our five-year plan 2020 - 2025

Our new five-year plan – 'Delivering better health for all through high impact innovation' - is ambitious and builds on all we have achieved since launching in 2009.

The plan is built upon four key themes that will underpin everything we do, and that are intricately linked to formulate a smart, flexible and impactful strategy.

The themes focus on:

  • delivering high impact innovations in novel technologies, therapeutics and diagnostics, to drive improvements in patient outcomes. This will be facilitated by our emerging life sciences cluster, connecting businesses, universities and healthcare to accelerate translation from research to patient benefit 
  • transforming quality improvement and outcomes across the system, using the evaluative capability of the South London Applied Research Collaboration and Health Innovation Network 
  • improving urban population health in south east London by supporting prevention and wellbeing promotion, including through the Vital 5 - five key issues that impact most widely on health - smoking tobacco, high blood pressure, obesity, drinking too much alcohol and common mental health conditions - enabled by our new Institute for Population Health; and 
  • training and developing the healthcare workforce of the future, recognising the need for new roles, improved skills and values and, supporting diversity, all facilitated by our Education Academy’s uniquely broad portfolio of health education.
