Innovation for Healthcare Inequalities Programme (InHIP)

The Innovation for Healthcare Inequalities Programme (InHIP) aims to address local healthcare inequalities experienced by deprived and other under-served populations.

Health Innovation Manchester, alongside expertise from Secondary Care partners and other community organisations in Greater Manchester, are working with local communities to identify, address and minimise healthcare inequalities through projects to improve access to the latest health technologies and medicines.

The programme is a unique collaboration between the Accelerated Access Collaborative (AAC), NHS England’s National Healthcare Inequalities Improvement Programme and the Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) and delivered in partnership with integrated care systems (ICSs).

These technologies and medicines are focused on five clinical areas of priority which closely align with the national Core20PLUS5 approach to reducing healthcare inequalities which includes:

  • Maternity
  • Mental Health
  • Respiratory
  • Cancer diagnosis
  • Cardiovascular disease

Key to this work are voices from local communities who are guiding this work to make sure that those most in need will benefit from it.

Nationally a total of £4.2 million was made available to support NHS England’s InHIP programme for eligible local projects across England.

This programme builds on the AAC and AHSN Networks’ achievements and learning to date in improving access to innovations in healthcare for the general population.
