Patient Education Remains In Focus As £60,000 Cancer Bursary Scheme Enters Third Year

Closing date:

A £60,000 grant scheme to support the increasing number of people living with and beyond a cancer diagnosis has been launched this week (August 1) by the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Cancer Alliance.

Successful applicants - particularly those demonstrating partnership working across organisations and communities - could secure up to £10,000 each to help patients manage their own conditions at the end of treatment - known as 'supported self management'.

This is a model of care where patients are helped to manage the impact of their condition closer to home, with access to clinical teams when they need it and with the right information, education and support.

The WYH Cancer Alliance patient education bursary scheme is now in its third year. Organisations and/or individuals working in GP surgeries or the community; in hospitals or specialist services, in voluntary organisations and charities, are invited to share their projects, apply for funding and explain how they could make a difference. 

Closing date for applications is Friday 19th August 2022 at 5pm.
