At the Health Foundation, we regard assessment as critical in supporting us to fund current, relevant and cutting edge projects in health and social care.

We want to select the best applicants to our programmes and support them throughout their projects to ensure they are successful in implementing, sustaining and spreading their improvement ideas and approaches.

To ensure that all applications that we receive for our programmes are assessed and selected in a rigorous, fair and transparent way, we set up a College of Assessors.

The College of Assessors support the assessment process for our new improvement programmes: Innovating for Improvement, Scaling Up Improvement and Spreading Improvement.

College of Assessor members are drawn from a range of disciplines and clinical areas. They include clinicians, allied health professionals, managers, improvement experts, evaluators and expert patients.

Our assessors have expertise in quality improvement methods and tools, and in solutions and innovations relating to improving quality in health care delivery.

We see the College of Assessors as an integral part of the assessment process and we plan to grow the college over time.

For more information about the College of Assessors, see the College of Assessors handbook.
