Have you had your say on the projects that you think should receive up to £40,000 funding?

For Q Exchange in 2022, funding of £800,000 was allocated for the programme. Delivered by Q and jointly funded by the Health Foundation and the NHS, in partnership for digital health and care, it offered Q members the chance to develop project ideas and submit bids for up to £40,000 of funding.

Applicants had the opportunity to refine and develop their ideas with the help of the Q community through a collaborative online process.

This year we were seeking project ideas on the theme ‘Bringing together the worlds and methods of improvement and digital, to enable better outcomes and faster, more sustainable change’.

The vote is now open! 30 projects have now been shortlisted and the Q community vote will decide which projects receive funding. The winners will be announced in June 2022.
