School of Research, Development and Innovation

The aim is to equip the county’s health and social care workforce with the skills and confidence to identify improvement needs in their areas, and to systematically make those improvements, measuring and demonstrating the impact that they have on citizen patient experience.

Research Innovation and Improvement Coordination (RIIC) Hub

The role of the Research, Innovation and Improvement Co-ordination (RIIC) Hub is to improve the quality and value of the research, innovation and improvement activity within the Regional Partnership Board (RPB) footprint, through learning and the sharing of ideas. 

While COVID-19 hindered our capacity to think strategically, our response to the pandemic has demonstrated our ability to think on our feet and innovate the way we deliver services to ensure service continuity and outcome delivery in the short-medium term. 


We must now harness the appetite for innovation to transform service delivery for the longer-term, working collaboratively to ensure our services can continue to operate and meet the needs and required outcomes of the people of Powys.
