How the NHS can use anchor strategies to build a healthy and sustainable post-COVID-19 recovery
There is a considerable risk that long-standing health inequalities will be exacerbated as a result of COVID-19 and as the initial ‘peak’ passes, we must consider the role of the NHS as an anchor institution and how this could help to mitigate the negative social and economic impacts of the pandemic.
Inviting consultancy services to set up new inclusion panel
We are inviting proposals from consultancy services to support the Health Foundation in setting up a new inclusion panel. The inclusion panel will initially act as a reference group for teams across the Foundation as they develop their research and analytical questions around health inequalities in response to COVID-19. The budget for this work is a maximum of £30,000 (including VAT and expenses) and the work will commence in July 2020. The deadline for proposal submissions is 18.00, Monday 13 July 2020.
Funding available for new COVID-19 Research Programme
The Health Foundation’s new COVID-19 Research Programme is now open for applications. Funding of between £100–£200k per project is available for projects seeking to understand the impact of COVID-19 in the UK. The programme’s two main areas of focus are services improvement in the health and social care system and health inequalities. Applications close in September 2020.
THIS Institute COVID-19 fellowship opportunity on maternity care
THIS Institute is launching a series of new fellowships that will deliver much-needed research to support the response to the COVID-19 crisis. The second fellowship invites applications from experienced quantitative researchers to build an initial, early form of a learning system for maternity care that would be of immediate value during the pandemic and lay the foundations for further development of a full-scale system. This work should ideally provide the basis of a scaleable model for developing learning healthcare systems in the NHS. Applications close on 2 July 2020.
