NHS Insights Prioritisation Programme in England

21 Mar 2022

The NHS Insights Prioritisation Programme (NIPP) is commissioned by the NHS Accelerated Access Collaborative (AAC) and the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). It is designed to accelerate the evaluation and implementation of innovation that supports post-pandemic ways of working, builds service resilience, and delivers benefits to patients.

The NIPP builds on the collaboration between the Beneficial Changes Network and the AAC. NIPP  provides competitive funding to enable Academic Health Science Network's (AHSNs) and Applied Research Collaborations (ARCs) to test promising innovations within their Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) and generate rapid insights to support local decision-makers about implementation.

Each AHSN and ARC partnership was asked to align their NIPP project proposals with one of four priority areas of focus:

  • Remote consultation;
  • Remote monitoring;
  • New approaches to service delivery;
  • Health and social care workforce innovation.

Fourteen projects have been funded and have now commenced activity that will be ongoing until March 2023, including the following:

  • Eastern AHSN and East of England ARC: understanding the implementation and impact of remote monitoring pathways in Integrated Care Systems;
  • Oxford AHSN/ Oxford and Thames ARC: virtual clinics for managing transient ischaemic attack and minor stroke – developing a safe and effective model for post-pandemic working;
  • Imperial College Health Partners/ARC North West London: improving Identification and Preventing Progression of Chronic Kidney Disease.
