NGS and QNI Launch 12 new Community Nursing projects across England

The most recent QNI Community Nursing Innovation Projects have begun across England.  

The group of 12 projects are a diverse group representing two separate but connected themes – Gardens and Health, supported by The National Garden Scheme, and Personalised Care, supported by NHS England and Improvement. The Gardens and Health Projects are known as the NGS Elsie Wagg (Innovation) Scholarships.

The 12 nurse-led projects all aim, in different ways, to improve the health of a community or group of people in a particular location, using innovative approaches. All the projects benefit from a year of support by the QNI’s Innovation Team, and financial support to enable them to put their projects into action. Learning from the projects will help inform future developments in community healthcare. 

The QNI is now seeking expressions of interest from healthcare organisations that would like to support  innovation projects in the community this year, led by their Community Nurses.

If you are a Nurse or an employer, please contact them to discuss your ideas and find out how they can help you deliver an exciting new project to improve patient care.

The closing date for applications is 29 April 2022.
