The Health Foundation, an independent charity working to improve the quality of health and health care in the UK, is searching for a leading UK university to establish and run a new institute for developing and applying research to improve health services.
We want to build on our investment in this field over the past five years by creating a thriving academic centre that, with partners, develops knowledge about how to improve services and translates this into demonstrable improvements in practice for patients.
We are looking for a university with a reputation for first class research into improving health services, and a strong record of collaboratively catalysing change in front line care in partnership with the NHS.
The Health Foundation will provide in the region of £30 million in funding over a period of 10 years to support establishment and development of the institute.
Applicants will need to identify a credible leader for the institute with an exemplary record in the study and application of improvement research, and demonstrate how they will work creatively and innovatively with other organisations, including but not limited to the NHS.
The deadline to submit an expression of interest is midday, Wednesday 15 July 2016.
