Our Six Research & Implementation Themes

Our vision is to improve the health of the people of Wessex and quality and cost-effectiveness of health care. We will achieve this through a step change in the integration and pathways of care for people with long-term conditions, and reducing the admissions and re-admissions to hospital by using more efficient and appropriate health care.
