What is the Health and Life Science Pledge

The Health and Life Science Pledge has been co-created following on from significant engagement and feedback with regional stakeholders. The purpose of the Health and Life Science Pledge is to bring together the Health and Life Science infrastructure in the NENC to enable Health and Social Care Innovation to grow, accelerate and ultimately flourish. As part of this launch event, we are inviting all key stakeholders involved in the health and care ecosystem to join us, by  coming together behind a common purpose to better Communicate, Collaborate and Celebrate™.

Our joint commitment through the ICB NENC and AHSN NENC is to encourage, enable and empower us all to support the North East and North Cumbria region with the following:

  • Support the reduction of health inequalities.
  • To improve and increase investment.
  • Promote economic growth to become recognised as an exemplar / Centre of Excellence for Health and Social Care Innovation.
