ICHP Impact Report 2022

The latest ICHP Impact Report, published today, showcases some of the innovative projects and collaborative programmes of work which have contributed to faster, more effective patient care, earlier diagnosis, and preventative treatments for the population in North West London over the last 12 months.

The report highlights the impact of collaborative working across the North West London Integrated Care System, with academia and industry, demonstrating ICHP’s strength in combining insights with partnerships across a range of external organisations to tackle local health and care challenges.

From transforming out-of-hospital care through the development and implementation of Respiratory Diagnostic Hublets, and supporting people at risk of cardiovascular disease through earlier diagnosis and treatment, to the set-up of an early-intervention service across two acute trusts to support young people with eating disorders. The case studies in this year’s impact report particularly demonstrate the benefits of bringing our combined capabilities to wide-ranging projects – including data analysis and insight, strategy and planning, solution sourcing, implementing change, engagement, communications, and storytelling.

Contributing to our mission of making healthcare better through transformation and innovation, examples of how we have created impact in 2021/22 include:

  • Mobilising the first in-school vaccinations in London, and supporting the roll-out of the vaccination programme in schools, with over 240 sites visited and over 77,000 first doses delivered within a six-month period
  • Re-designing the NWL post-Covid referral pathway, including implementation of a supported self-management solution to help people manage their recovery at home
  • Designing a new integrated pathway (including a remote care service) for patients most at-risk of developing complications due to uncontrolled Type 2 Diabetes, in partnership with NWL ICS
  • Evidencing the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on children and young people accessing Mental Health services, to help inform targeted real-world recommendations for care services as part of the North West London Networked Data Lab
  • Delivery of engagement programme to understand patient, public and staff views and expectations in relation to diagnostic tests and community diagnostic centres, with results being used by London ICSs to inform local design
  • Design and delivery of pan-London deliberation to inform the London Health Data Strategy – a partnership programme between the NHS, research community and citizens to underpin and enable the consistent use of data for planning, improvement, and research
  • Supporting implementation of the Paediatric Early Warning Score (PEWS) Chart across NWL’s four acute trusts
