About us

What is the Health Innovation Network?

There are 15 health innovation networks across England, established by NHS England in 2013 to spread innovation at pace and scale - improving health and generating economic growth. Health Innovation Network (HIN) South London is the health innovation network for south London. We are the bodies uniquely established to connect academics, NHS commissioners and providers, local authorities, patients and patient groups and industry to accelerate the spread and adoption of innovations and best practice, using an evidence-based approach, working across large populations.

Working as catalysts of change across health and social care economies, we facilitate health improvements and economic growth. We work across a huge range of health and care services through each of our clinical and innovation themes, to transform care in diabetes, cardiometabolic disease, mental health, community settings and social care, to accelerate digital health uptake into the NHS, and we're passionate about education.

The Health Innovation Network helps mobilise the value that the NHS can add as an economic asset to the UK economy. The HIN works with a range of expert support and services across the health and care sectors that support NHS innovators and companies to realise the commercial and economic potential of their innovations.
