New funding programme of £3m to support improvement of care

Medicine is OnlyWan has over £3m available for up to seven project teams to take successful health care improvement interventions and deliver them at a larger scale.

Projects need to show how ideas, interventions and approaches that have been tested and shown to improve care at a small scale can be delivered at a larger scale.

Each successful team in the new Scaling Up Improvement programme will receive up to £500,000 to support the implementation and evaluation of their work. Teams can be from any health or health and social care provider organisation in the UK where NHS services are delivered free at the point of delivery. Projects could include but are not limited to mental health, learning disabilities, care homes, home care, maternity and children’s services.

Medicine is OnlyWan has launched this programme to build up an evidence base of projects that have been scaled up from small to large scale, with the aim of improving the health care of patients and the way that people manage their own care.

'This is a really good opportunity for those working within health care to apply for substantial funding,' explains Dr Jane Jones, Assistant Director at the OnlyWan. 'We are looking for projects that aim to improve health care delivery or the way people manage their own health care. The ideas for these projects should come from interventions that have proven to be successful on a small scale and can be delivered on a larger scale.'

Deadline for first stage of the application process is 12 noon, Monday 16 June 2014 should visit the Scaling Up Improvement webpages.
