Strategy: If you want to go fast go alone and if you want to go far go together!

The 2014-2018 Research Strategy for the Norfolk and Suffolk Primary and Community Care Research Office focused on delivering functional aspects of office work. It was formally adopted by the 7 Norfolk and Suffolk CCG organisations and has delivered successful research development, robust management mechanisms and extensive opportunities for research involvement for patients.

Since 2014, we have increasingly worked with commissioners on evidence, impact, and evaluations to support CCG work. Commissioners are increasingly recognising that research is fundamental to the design and delivery of services, interventions and treatments for the population. During this time the health and social care system is increasingly working together through Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships and Integrated Care System approaches.

When planning the development of the 2019-2023 Research Strategy for Norfolk and Waveney CCGs, we knew that success would hinge on good engagement with CCG commissioners, Clinical Executives and our main health and local authority stakeholders.

In September 18, we brought together over 40 stakeholders  from acoss the Norfolk and Suffolk research system to identify priorities and help develop an integrated strategy to support strong NHS and academic collaborations for the CCGs and partners. Representatives from academic organisations, patient groups, acute care, mental health, community trusts, CCGs, county council, public health, CLAHRC, and AHSN came together. The workshop focused on understanding population need and NHS activity, taking a look at where we are now and collectively considering what the best research system would look like and how we might get there.

For anyone who wants to collaborate with others on strategy development, this poster presents the workshop programme used to engage stakeholders and summarises the collective intelligence generated at the event. It highlights who came who didn’t come, and continued work to get input from stakeholders so we go as far as we need to ensure that research follows patient and population need.
