This is your opportunity to test your innovative ideas for improving the quality of healthcare locally and gather evidence about its impact and effectiveness.
Our annual Shine programme focuses on aspects of healthcare quality that reflect the key issues the UK health service faces. This year the challenge is to find new approaches to delivering healthcare that aim to achieve one of the following:
· supporting patients to be active partners in their own care
· improving patient safety
· improving quality while reducing costs.
All projects need to identify the costs and benefits of the intervention.
The maximum award for each project is £75,000.
Up to 18 projects will be selected and each project will run over 15 months, including three months' set up and a 12 month implementation period. Projects will be in operation by the beginning of 2013 and each project will present results at an end-of-programme conference to be held in the first quarter of 2014.
Shine is open to applications from healthcare teams based in any of the four countries of the UK, and NHS, private and voluntary sector organisations are equally invited to apply.
