Further development

A number of innovations were identified as having the potential for further funding in order to have more wide reaching impact. Those selected were invited to present to a panel made up of representatives from RCN and RCN Foundation and bid for investment.

Four innovations were successful in this bidding process and period of sustained investment and development started in May 2018. This is due to end in May 2019.

The chosen projects represent the highest standards and best practice for nurses, midwives and carers within the health care community, and their patients across the UK.

Below you can read more about the project lead as well as find out more about how the RCN and RCN Foundation are supporting their work.
