The world of the NHS

Last night I was invited to be a guest of NHS Innnovations East at the Health Enterprise East Annual Innovation Competion Awards Dinner 2012, the reason for it is that we are about to do something similar and I am on a ‘Dragons Den’ style panel at an event in December being organised by Improvement East to promote innovation in Social Care.

It was a good evening as I was on a Suffolk Table with the Diabetes Team from Ipswich Hospital who were there with their ‘The Ipswich Touch Test’ (IpTT), I had a long conversation with the lead Dr. Gerry Rayman MD FRCP who came up with this remarkable simply innovation so remarkable in fact that they won the Award for Disease prevention, screening & diagnosis.

I also had a chance to catch up with both Ann Tate Chairman of Ipswich Hosital about some of their operational issues and how we can work better together particualrly around how to keep older people out of hospital. I also had a long chat with Roger Quince Chairman of the West Suffolk Hospital about their longer term plans and how we will work with the new Serco operated community services. An excellent evening in what has been another world as we all start to learn how to work better together, hopefully!
