Enterprising Health Partnership

Our Enterprising Health Partnership, with the hospital, supports innovative ideas from staff which can make a real difference to patients' lives. Up to £50,000 of funding is available for initiatives that improve patient care and experience and which generate revenue or real cost savings for the hospital.

Smoking Cessation Social Impact Bond - Working with the North West London Clinical Commissioning Group, together with Thrive Tribe’s Kick It programme, we are supporting patients at the hospital to give up smoking. The service provides specific stop-smoking clinics for maternity, respiratory cardiac and pre-operative patients.

RELAX Anaesthetics - Children can be naturally anxious before an operation. This can lead to a higher chance of complications and delays to operating. Anaesthetists Peter Brooks and Corina Lee have designed an app platform to relax and distract children through music, arts and games in anaesthetics rooms prior to surgery. Relaxation tools are available at the touch of a button to help provide calmer and more efficient anaesthetic inductions and a better experience for children, families and staff. More information.
