Local growth events

access to finance

The latest events and resources to help NHS organisations engage with local economic growth plans and investment opportunities.

New forms of funding

New forms of funding is a series of free-to-attend workshops exploring a range of emerging forms of investment funding relevant to local institutions such as combined and local authorities, universities and NHS organisations.

The programme has been developed by the NHS Confederation, Universities UK and the Higher Education Funding Council for England, with the support of the Local Government Association and PA Consulting.

The focus is on various types of bonds, loan funds and integrated funding approaches which will sustain future strategic infrastructure and site development. As ‘risk-based’ opportunities, they require local institutions to think and act very differently when compared to traditional grant regimes. 

Helping NHS leaders' finance transformation 

Some of these funding sources will be new to NHS colleagues. But given the increasing understanding of the NHS’ role in local place-based decision-making, and reductions in available capital funding for STP plans, it is important we are aware of these mechanisms and how they can help address our challenges.

The programme is supported by an online community of practice to help embed local, cross-sectoral relations. Join our discussions on LinkedIn.
