The Health Foundation – Scaling Up Improvement

Do you have a health care intervention or approach that has been proven to deliver better care?

  • Are you ready to deliver your intervention or approach at scale?
  • We’re looking for teams with approaches or interventions that have been successfully tested at a small scale, shown to improve care and are now ready to be implemented more widely.
  • Apply now to receive up to £500,000 funding to support the implementation and evaluation of your project.

 

Scaling Up Improvement supports teams to take successful health care interventions or approaches and deliver them at scale, to improve health care in the UK. The Health Foundation will support up to seven projects that aim to scale and spread tested interventions or approaches to improve the delivery of healthcare services. Projects must be able to make improvements at scale at care pathway, health board, clinical network, organisational, regional or national levels. Your project should result in direct impact on patient outcomes within the timescale of the programme.

Due to the range of skills and experience required to deliver an improvement project of this scale, it is expected that a number of organisations will need to work together in partnership to deliver a successful project.

To apply read the information below and complete the screening tool to check your eligibility.
