NURSE, MIDWIFE, AND ALLIED HEALTH PROFESSIONAL FUNDING CALL 2020

The Special Funding Call 2020 awards grants for Nurse, Midwife, or AHP-led projects that aim to improve patient experience and care at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

This call is open to all nurses, midwives, and allied health professionals at the Trust who wish to run projects that prioritise innovation, transformation, and quality improvement. Applications will be considered for projects requesting up to £10,000 and a Dragons’ Den style event will determine projects funded.

Examples of project applications that were successfully funded in the past include:

  • Buddy Bags – to provide a bag with essential products for children and young people who enter our hospitals with no possessions
  • Learning environment in A&E – to transform a small meeting room into a learning environment for A&E learners and staff

We are particularly interested in funding projects that:

  • Promote innovation, transformation and new service development
  • Support staff in the delivery of front line patient care

If you have an idea to deliver better patient experience and care, apply by downloading an application form and send it to grants@cwplus.org.uk by Wednesday 12 August.

For further information or guidance, please contact Henna at henna.kuivalainen@cwplus.org.uk or on 07943 966473.

To celebrate the 70th birthday of the NHS and to recognise the fantastic staff at our hospitals and clinics, we have established a special Training, 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.

We can give you up to £500 per staff area to fund support which improves staff wellbeing and morale, making every day a little bit easier and improving your workplace. This fund is open to all Trust staff. Past bids have included a mattress for the plastic surgery on call room and awareness materials for Allied Health Professionals Day.
