2013-14 CCG Innovation Bursary Scheme


One of the key visions of the Tower Hamlets clinical commissioning group (CCG) is to work with the community and voluntary sector (CVS) to jointly bring about health and health service improvements for our local population.  To support this vision, a £65,000 bursary is being made available to support a number of innovative projects that will help support some of the key health priorities within our Borough.
