UCLPartners have launched a new round of funding to support teams from health and social care organisations across the partnership to adopt innovations designed to improve the experiences of staff.
This is the second round of funding being made available through UCLPartners Innovation Adoption Fund, which seeks to support teams from across the health and social care landscape to overcome the practical barriers associated with adopting and spreading proven innovations.
Teams are being invited to apply for up to £10,000 to help them to adopt, spread or test and refine a workforce innovation over a six-month period.
Rebecca Graham, Director of HR and OD for UCLPartners said: “For the health and care workforce, COVID-19 has added new challenges to already challenging work. We want to support innovation that responds to these challenges. This fund has been designed to support teams in our region to adopt innovations that can improve staff experience, which in turn can improve the quality of care provided.”
John Craig, Chief Executive of Care City and Chair of the Panel said: “We realise that many teams working in health and social care will want to adopt new innovations but adapting proven innovations for a new setting can be resource intensive. This fund aims to address some of those challenges.
“Workforce innovations can be broad ranging – from self-rostering for flexible working to training for new roles – we’re keen to hear from teams wanting to implement any innovation that can improve the overall staff experience”
