The Cumberland Initiative is also supported by friends from a clinical background, who share an interest in improving commissioning and service delivery through the development of better simulation, modelling and systems thinking. These friends include anyone working in the clinical field, whether in the National Health Service or in other healthcare systems. Our clinical friends are vital to us, helping us to ensure that fresh thinking in academia is properly addressing the needs of those planning and delivering health care.
