Shine is The Health Foundation’s new annual award focusing on innovation. Each year they will be looking for ideas that tackle a key challenge to high quality care. The Shine challenge for 2011 is: find new approaches to delivering healthcare that reduce the need for acute hospital care – while improving quality and saving money.
They are looking to invest up to £75,000 in each of up to 18 projects. Over 12 months, teams will be supported to put their approach into practice to gather evidence about its impact and effectiveness. They welcome applications from teams from across the health service, including the voluntary sector.
Shine opens for applications on 12 July 2010. Closing Date: 04 October 2010.
