The ihub improvement fund was launched earlier this year to give health and social care organisations the opportunity to apply for funding to design and test new solutions that will lead to measurable improvements and/or share learning and practice.

To date the fund has received over 100 enquiries.

The £200,000 fund will make awards between £5,000 and £75,000 early in the 2016/17 financial year.

Luke Cavanagh, Unit Head, Tailored and Responsive Improvement Support Team (TRIST) said:

“I would like to thank everyone who has applied to the Improvement Fund. We have been delighted with the number and range of applications to the fund. This year’s successful applicants will be announced at the start of 2017. Details about 2017/18 fund will also be announced early next year.”
