Around the world, health and care systems are facing huge challenges. People are living longer but not necessarily healthier lives. Most of us are well aware that there is an urgent need to transform our approaches to treating disease, preventing ill health and maintaining wellbeing.
When it comes to preventing ill health and providing care, one size does NOT fit all.
Scientific and medical advances and new technologies are helping us better understand disease and ill health. This means we can make more informed decisions for individual people, enabling timely prevention and more effective, efficient and higher quality of care.
We are helping transform the health and wellbeing of Leeds citizens by improving the speed and quality at which new health and care technologies are evaluated and adopted into the NHS.
These technologies need to address the needs of our population and also help us achieve a financially sustainable healthcare system.
