Innovative Healthcare Delivery Programme

Shared Healthcare Learning

We have a clear remit to apply proven methodology to other clinical areas.

We aim to take local learning nationally.


As a collaborative programme, IHDP identifies areas for cross sector working and develops inclusive relationships to sustain a joined up approach. Acting as a ‘translational hub’ between sectors, we promote a national approach that demonstrates the benefits of achieving a Nationwide Learning Health System. 


The area of rare diseases is now applying IHDP’s approach to cancer data. Other healthcare areas, like heart disease, could also adopt this effective data approach.
