Health Innovation Network South London pledge to the Equally Well Charter:

The Health Innovation Network is the Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) for south London, one of 15 AHSNs across England. Our mission is to “speed up the best in health and care, together” in order to improve patient outcomes and healthcare efficiency. Working with our partners, we identify evidence-based innovations, and support health and care organisations to adapt and adopt these, enabling tangible benefits from improved care.

All our clinical themes: Diabetes and Stroke Prevention, Musculoskeletal, Healthy Ageing and Mental Health and Patient Safety, have committed to ensuring that their work improves outcomes for all, including those with mental illness. Our focus this year is on improving the detection of Atrial Fibrillation in people with serious mental illness. We are also committed to introducing providers and commissioners to promising digital solutions, and evaluating their impact.

As a member of the national AHSN Network we are able to work with colleagues across England to promote the adoption of evidenced based solutions that improve the lives of people with serious mental illness.  The Health Innovation Network will actively encourage all AHSNs to sign the Equally Well Charter.
