Showcasing the diverse range of activities we support.

Stories to inspire innovation and creativity

Our funding can make a real and lasting difference to health and healthcare. We are working on a number of significant projects and workstreams that are instigating radical change in health and healthcare, for example those around diagnosis, primary care and integrated care.

We fund and support a wide range of activities and initiatives, big and small. Some are focused on whole-population change; some on specific patient groups. Some use art as a way to instigate innovative thinking; some look to bring together a diverse range of people to initiate coordinated, seamless care. What these initiatives have in common is a focus on using radical innovation to prompt change.

Here we celebrate the diversity of our impact with stories of innovation, creativity and imagination.

We showcase a range of initiatives that we have funded, with details of how they started, progressed and what impact they have had or hope to have. We hope they will inspire and encourage others to think radically about how health and healthcare can be improved.
