Innovating for Improvement: £1.7m fund for clinical teams to test and develop ideas

13 June, 2018

The Health Foundation has £1.7m available for clinical teams to test and develop innovative ideas and approaches to improve health and social care delivery.

They are particularly interested in applications that focus on supporting the workforce to improve the quality of care.

Each successful team will receive up to £75,000 of funding, over 15 months, to put their ideas into practice and improve patient care. Applications are open and must be completed online by midday, Monday, 9 July 2018.

The Innovating for Improvement programme supports clinical teams to test and develop innovative ideas and approaches, put them into practice and gather evidence about how their innovation improves quality.

The Health Foundation is particularly interested in:

  • Innovations that support the physical and mental wellbeing of staff and contribute to the improved care of patients.
  • Innovations that focus on improved team working and relationships.
  • Innovative use of technology or automation to address workforce challenges.

The money is to test and develop innovative approaches to improve health care delivery through the redesign of processes, practices, services and models of delivery.

The programme is open to applicants from across the UK. Teams need to demonstrate a clearly identified and convincing problem that they want to address.
