ABC UK Grants

As well as participating in and supporting research, we also actively encourage and fund research and projects to improve outcomes for patients.


ABC UK Improving Outcomes for Patients Programme 2017 

This new small grants programme for 2017 launched on 01 November 2016.  It is aimed at encouraging work that will directly improve patient outcomes and experience.  The programme focuses on small, innovative projects that can demonstrate clear outcomes and improve knowledge, enable change and have a direct impact on patient experience.

Our view of what constitutes an eligible project is broad and not limited to research projects.  The programme is open to applications from cancer specialists, nurses, those in primary care and researchers. 

Further details about this programme and how to apply are below.  Deadline for applications is 31 January 2017.
