Implementation plays a key role in the Observatory’s three part operating model. On the basis of our recommendations, and in response to the needs of the communities we work with, we support the implementation of new policies and practice at the grassroots. We fund and lead innovate anti-racist improvement and implementation practices and are committed to working in partnership with healthcare systems and providers. Our approach to implementation is the result of iterative co-design and is constantly tested and challenged to ensure its having the intended impact.

Our aim is to establish a future-proof implementation model, a pipeline that can be adapted across all of our different areas of focus to translate research findings into practical changes in the NHS and beyond. That’s why we’ve three new programmes of work aimed specifically at enhancing improvement and implementation.
