What we're learning from our work improving health in our communities
With our impending reconstitution, proposals to change how our funding committees work and spending plans for the next year on the table, our Board of Trustees had a lot to consider this month.
When we were asked to reflect on the year that ends, an overriding theme flowed through each individual’s anecdotes and reflections: that it is people not institutions or companies that drive change and improve lives.
This month we witnessed the launch of the Guy's and St Thomas' Bright Ideas Fund, a partnership between Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust and the Charity to support innovative ideas that help improve healthcare and also have commercial potential.
So why is there such a sense of joy at the Charity this week? Well, we have finally secured the site and partnerships to enable Ronald McDonald House Charities to build a stunning new facility for 59 families to stay in close to Evelina London Children’s Hospital.
