Innovation Fund

Bracknell and Ascot Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has an innovation fund available for 2015/16.  The purpose of the fund is to identify innovation (in line with our commissioning priorities) and encourage best practice. The funds will support short term pilots of up to 12 months or pump prime a service change.

If the pilot has an evidence-based, positive impact, the CCG may consider expans ion of the project either in terms longevity or population benefit.

Applications are being encouraged from NHS, Third Sector, Community and Private Providers.

Purpose of the Fund

The CCG takes its priorities from the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategies of our two local unitary authorities, Bracknell Forest Council (BFC) and Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and Ascot (RBWM).

In Bracknell Forest these are:

  • Children need to have the best possible life chances, including good housing, good education and healthy lifestyles.
  • Mental Health – particularly depression and dementia.
  • Long Term Conditions – particularly respiratory illness, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
  • Cancer – raise the importance for cancer to be diagnosed early, to improve outcomes for patients.
  • Sexual health – including sexual health promotion, family planning (contraception) as well as the prevention and treatment of sexually transmitted infections.
  •  Vulnerable groups – paying particular attention to people who are more likely to become ill, or who may need particular services.

Whilst in RBWM similar priorities are grouped around three themes of:

  • Supporting a healthy population
  • Prevention and early intervention
  • Enabling residents to maximise their capabilities and life chances.
