The Cumberland Initiative is proud to announce that it is creating a national centre as a laboratory for models of care. Backed by NHS organisations, universities, industry and clinicians, we want to develop a predictive, instead of reactive, NHS. We aim to
Transform the quality and cost of NHS care delivery through systems thinking.
Secure significant economic stimulus through new products, systems and services.
You are cordially invited to join us at one or more of the following family of events during the launch week in May. These include:

Plus: The Cave
This is an interactive space where simulations and models will be running with the opportunity to talk to commercial and academic specialists.
As part of this service, several universities are offering a Masters project over the summer to take on a project that you define during your visit to The Cave.
To enable commissioning and trust teams to explore in detail, the three days will be split into 45 minute sessions during which you will have access to a simulation specialist.
