Funding holds the key to implementing a successful transformation programme, making it a vital part of the journey within healthcare transformation.
Whilst some healthcare organisations may have funding already allocated to this cause, others, such as a number of NHS Trusts, need to request funding that requires a successful business case. Sources of funding for remote consultation pods can include
Your dedicated charity - Some Trust's charities will fund the developments
Existing budget - Some departments may already have funding for developments or be able to re-allocate funds from another area in the department
Request for funding through capital bids by writing a business case
Government funding schemes
To help those needing to write a business case to grant funding for virtual consultation pods, we've put together some of the key facts, data and feedback we've gained through our work with NHS Trusts.
Where funding isn't immediately available, clients have found it beneficial to install a trial pod that helps to provide feedback and insights to help write a tailored business case. Find out more about our trials.
Let's get to the tools.
