Our purpose was simple.

Thames Valley Health Innovation and Education Cluster (HIEC) was a mechanism by which good ideas that promoted the welfare of patients in the Thames Valley area made their way into working practice as soon as possible. How did we do this?  We looked for ideas and approaches that have proven their worth, and promoted their adoption more broadly, so we  improved care for as many people as possible, right across our region. We worked with NHS Trusts, universities, local authorities, charities and private sector companies who are at the forefront of innovative practice.  Anybody who is enthusiastic about excellence in care really. This site, now our legacy website, tells the story of what we did; why we did it; and who helped. Enjoy your visit!
