Here's where you can read more information about our £60,000 patient education bursary scheme.

The Living With and Beyond Cancer programme aims to ensure that quality of life and experience of care are considered to be as important as cancer survival, and that patients are empowered through education to self-manage their care following cancer treatment.

As part of the West Yorkshire and Harrogate (WY&H) Cancer Alliance delivery plan for 2019/2020, funding has been secured from NHS England for a bursary award to organisations and teams to help them develop patient education which facilitates supported self-management - from initiatives that look at the content, through to delivery of the education or evaluation of current practice.

The £60,000 initiative aims to give a minimum of six organisations (primary, secondary, charitable or voluntary organisations) or individual teams access to a bursary of up to £10,000. (If some applications are less than £10,000 then more awards may be granted). To ensure equitable access to the bursary, applications will be reviewed on an acute provider footprint, with a maximum of £10,000 being awarded to each area. Local system integrated working and collaboration with local partners (including voluntary sector and charitable organisations) is encouraged.

Closing date for completed applications is 12 noon, Monday 19th August 2019.
