HEE Thames Valley is again offering financial support to help NHS practitioners (non-medical) Thames Valley to undertake accredited courses in the care of the older person, with an emphasis on person-centred care, preventing illness, maintaining independence and dignity, supporting mental health, and care close to home.

Funding may be sought for any accredited course which helps practitioners to support the older person through person-centred care, up to and including Masters modules. A list of the types of courses which practitioners have undertaken in our region is attached below, but this list is not exhaustive and other courses can be considered.

The Bursary scheme is open to Nurses, Midwives, Pharmacists and Allied Health Professionals in Thames Valley (Berks, Bucks, Milton Keynes and Oxon) who:

·           are currently registered to practice with the appropriate regulatory and professional bodies in the UK;
·           work in practice for at least two days per week for an organisation which provides healthcare for the NHS within Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Milton Keynes or Oxfordshire;
·           have at least one year’s post-registration practice experience;
·           have employer support to undertake the programme; and
·           are committed to improving the care of the older person.
