The Health Foundation, one of C4CC’s partners has launched a new funding programme to help improve patient care and outcomes by exploring how to increase continuity of care within general practice.
The programme is a result of Health Foundation research which demonstrated that patients with ambulatory care sensitive conditions who see the same GP a greater proportion of the time have fewer unplanned hospital admissions.
Grants of up to £250,000 over 12-24 months are on offer to three to four large-scale practices to carry out targeted quality improvement work to increase continuity in their practices.
The Health Foundation will provide technical support and project evaluation to successful applicants and is willing to consider working with organisations that are running existing pilots/programmes of this kind that require extra funding.
Expressions of Interest close on Friday, August 24th at midday.
