The Foundation is committed to the provision and improvement of medical education, knowledge and research.
Since the Foundation was set up, over £1 million has been awarded. The Foundation will consider grants to support:
The Meningitis Research Foundation
received funding to create an e-learning tool to help diagnose bacterial meningitis in babies. Medical algorithms have been translated into an online resource that can now be used by clinicians in order to improve their diagnostics, and treatment of meningitis in babies.
A training day was funded for Action on Pre-Eclampsia
to help raise awareness of pre-eclampsia for midwives. The day was informative, and left those who had attended feeling more prepared to tackle pre-eclampsia in pregnant women.
A project from Tiny Tickers
to produce a series of short films about childhood heart conditions has been supported by the Foundation. Two of eight videos have been produced so far, receiving a positive and informed response on social media.
Target Ovarian Cancer’s ‘Rule it Out’ programme aims to increase awareness and train GP’s in the earlier diagnosis of ovarian cancer. The Foundation’s support has helped to train more GP’s through online modules and toolkits.
