Spreading Improvement A programme to spread successful improvement ideas, and generate evidence and learning about how to effectively disseminate and spread best practice


This programme is closed for applications.

  • Facilitates greater spread of Health Foundation projects across health care and maximises the impact of our funding by supporting efforts to adopt, adapt and develop proven ideas, improvement approaches and solutions.
  • Aims to generate evidence and learning about how to effectively disseminate and spread improvement.


The programme supports projects that we have previously funded, which have already demonstrated local benefit and have the ambition and potential to scale their interventions to other contexts at a local, regional or national level.

We have invited applications from teams and have supported nine teams to take their work forward to further scale.  The teams are focusing on a variety of different health care challenges and are using various methodologies and approaches to scale their work.
