Working in partnership
One of the key strands of our strategy is to work in partnership with patients, colleagues and communities. Within this, we have a number of partnership schemes:
The Solent Community Research Partnership
The Solent Community Research Partnership sees us working alongside organisations who would like to enable their clients/students/residents to have access to research, or to learn more about it. Click here to find out more and to learn about the streams we have running currently.
We also work in partnership with:
We work with a number of Universities to offer a wide variety of research opportunities to patients in the local area. Our partnerships allow us to assist in the development of new research projects and support our academic partners to achieve successful applications for research grants hosted by the NHS. Our Clinical Academic Training Programme supports clinicians at Solent NHS Trust to develop their academic partnerships as they undertake research projects seeking to answer questions important to clinical practice.
Examples of this partnership working are:
- Our Clinical Academic Training Programme, delivered in partnership with the University of Southampton Faculty of Health Sciences
- A collaboration with the Centre for Sexual Health Research which is working in particular on the use of digital technology in the delivery sexual health services
- We are a partner Trust and Board member for the NIHR CLARHC (Collaboration for Leadership in Research in Health and Care) Wessex, that include projects with their Data Science Hub modelling optimum locations for sexual health clinics and the use of a social networking tool (GENIE) to support recovery and home based care for those with mental health illness or long terms conditions
One of our core aims as an Academy is to work in partnership with those that use our come into contact with either ourselves or our services.
The group that work within the Academy are called "Side-by-Side". This is a partnership with a dedicated group of individuals that give a patient and public perspective to our work. The group meet regularly to help make sure everything that the team do has a patient and public perspective embedded at the heart of it. Click here to find out how to join this group.
We also place patients and the public at the heart of our training. We are keen that all of our Quality Improvement Projects include patient or community input, and the training is open to anyone that would like to be involved. Similarly, patient or service user colleagues are welcome to submit ideas for our Dragons Den innovation fund, to work with Solent services on new initiatives.
