The Health Foundation
The Health Foundation is an independent charity committed to bringing about better health and health care for people in the UK.
Our aim is a healthier population, supported by high quality health care that can be equitably accessed. We learn what works to make people’s lives healthier and improve the health care system. From giving grants to those working at the front line to carrying out research and policy analysis, we shine a light on how to make successful change happen.
We make links between the knowledge we gain from working with those delivering health and health care and our research and analysis. Our aspiration is to create a virtuous circle, using what we know works on the ground to inform effective policymaking and vice versa.
We believe good health and health care are key to a flourishing society. Through sharing what we learn, collaborating with others and building people’s skills and knowledge, we aim to make a difference and contribute to a healthier population.
Health Education England: Northwest
Health Education England (HEE) exists for one reason only: to support the delivery of excellent healthcare and health improvement to the patients and public of England. Working across the north west, we ensure that the workforce of today and tomorrow has the right numbers, skills, values and behaviours, at the right time and in the right place.
Action for Sick Children
We believe that family focused environments, as well as excellent medical services, are critical to aiding recovery. Action for Sick Children provides leadership at local and national levels. We harness the experience and expertise of children, parents and their families as well as healthcare professionals. We define standards in child healthcare and lobby to implement these standards.
Parent Voices Count
We are working in partnership with the North West Children’s Palliative Care Network with the aim to improve children’s services. We recognize that parents and carers know what it’s like to have a child with a life threatening or life limiting condition and can advise professionals about what works, what doesn't work and what needs to change. We are keen to work with other parents and carers to encourage involvement and participation in the design, implementation and evaluation of children’s services.
Our vision is for all families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness to have access to a Rainbow Trust carer at this time of great need.
