Insight gathering and testing existing evidence will be central to the project delivery and act as the foundation for co-creating a service redesign of the healthcare systems currently in place. Existing services in the region will be adapted to provide services that are appropriately suited to these groups. The project is being delivered by partner organisations in the UK (London, East Sussex and Kent), Belgium and the Netherlands.
