The Burdett Trust for Nursing launch two new grant programmes

13 July 2016

The Burdett Trust launch two new grant programmes:

Improving nurse retention

Grants of £50K to £250K

Retention has been identified by Health Education England, the Department of Health and by health care commissioners as being the single most important issue in enabling the sustainability of effective and productive healthcare delivery in the UK.

The Burdett Trust considers that it is our duty to ensure that we recruit and retain a motivated and productive workforce in order to deliver what matters most for nurses and for the patients they support, seeking every opportunity to reduce attrition from the profession.

This programme will support nurse-led projects that can help achieve and retain a skilled and resilient workforce capable of, and committed to, delivering the highest level of patient care. 

Strengthening nursing leadership

Grants of £10K to £50K

Nurses are often expert at providing strong clinical leadership in their practice. However, their leadership skills do at times need to be strengthened to ensure that they are able to improve health and well-being and care for people who use our services.

They need expertise to lead pathways, to lead across organisations and across communities as well as leading multi-professional teams.

The Trust is looking to support projects that demonstrate the development and expansion of nurse leadership in clinical care, environment of care, social care and education.

Closing date: Midnight, Friday 2 September 2016
