Advancing innovation and excellence
Announcing the Crown Fund
In September 2019 we were thrilled to
launch the Crown Fund: a new programme
for funding smaller projects, designed to
attract exciting and impactful initiatives
across our hospitals.
Departments, wards and specialties were invited to
share their project ideas for up to £25,000 to conduct
small-scale innovations that have the potential to make
a big difference to patient outcomes and experience.
Some of the successful applications included:
Refurbishing the Oasis Birth Centre
The Oasis Birth Centre at the Princess Royal
University Hospital in Bromley offers women
and their families the opportunity to begin or
extend their parenting journey in a home-like
environment within the hospital setting.
The midwifery team seek to repurpose and
rejuvenate the maternity day room to
provide a sanctuary for women giving
birth, as well as introduce hypnobirthing
and parenting classes.
Pregnancy and birth is such a special time for women and
families, and we have the opportunity to accentuate this
experience. We hope that improving the facilities and
introducing the new services will lead to women having
a more positive labour and birth experience.”
