UK Department of Health (National) -£10m to encourage new health innovation and education clusters (HIECS)

“The Department of Health is inviting applications for partnerships between health, social care, education and business sectors to become Health Innovation and Education Clusters (HIECs) , which will deliver high quality care to patients, it announced today.

The £10million cash injection will fund the cost of setting up these new clusters, which will bring together organisations from across the NHS, higher education, industry and other public and private sector organisations.

The clusters will improve the knowledge and skills of NHS staff, by providing best practice education and training for nurses, doctors, dentists and the full range of professions in all healthcare settings. This in turn will quickly bring the latest innovations in care and treatment, including new medicines and devices to NHS patients.” … continues

To help applicants the Department of Health has published a guide ‘Breakthrough to real change in local healthcare: A guide for applications to create Health Innovation and Education Clusters (HIECs)’.
