We have grants programmes to award funding to hospital staff for projects which will help them to deliver better patient experience and care. We fund:

  • Projects which promote innovation, transformation and new service development
  • Projects which support staff in the delivery of front line patient care
  • Fast track awards (up to £2,000) to support patient experience

Our Patient Environment programme aims to transform the hospital experience and environment for patients, their families and the staff who care for them. Patient Environment projects can include artwork, music and sound, furniture for treatment, consulting or waiting areas, ceiling tiles and lightboxes, bespoke patient information boards, screens for digital artwork. We will consider applications where the entirety of the cost is under £10,000.

To celebrate the 70th birthday of the NHS and to recognise the fantastic staff at our hospitals and clinics, we have established a special Staff Education and Development Fund. Funding is available for staff wishing to undertake education and development opportunities outside of their own hospital/clinic or to bring in specialist trainers to share and disseminate best practice. Activities must be outside of the mandatory training for your role and we will not fund study leave or backfill. We will consider funding applications from all patient-facing staff, clinical or non-clinical, employed by the Trust on permanent contracts.
