Overview

As part of this roll out, Wessex AHSN has produced an extensive online resource area to help implement FeNO testing locally.

Pathway Transformation Funding was opened to help providers overcome practical obstacles to introducing FeNO and whilst that application cycle has now closed, The West Midlands Academic Health Science Network is now opening further local/regional applications for the provision of the FeNO device and mouthpieces.

It is envisaged that this application will be utilised at PCN level and whilst there is no maximum number of devices and mouthpieces you are able to apply for, with funds and support available, the number of projects will need to be balanced and, where possible, equitable across the region.  Projects should last no longer than 12 months from the point that they start. 

Training Packages:

The AHSN Education toolkit will be available in September

Circassia has developed a FeNO Masterclass with dates currently under review

 

AHSN Support:

The West Midlands Academic Health Science Network will provide support to your FeNO project in the form of Project and Clinical Leadership, overseen and supported by:

Victoria Savage, Innovation Project Manager - victoria.savage@wmahsn.org

Martin Allen, Clinical Lead - martin.allen@uhnm.nhs.uk

WMAHSN will be in contact with you throughout your project and monthly progress reports plus a single project-end report will need to be provided (no later than 3 months after conclusion of the project) and will therefore form part of the Service Level Agreement entered into.

 

Shared Learning:

There will be the opportunity for successful sites to come together to share learning experiences and it is expected that any sites applying will actively seek to engage with this opportunity and participate in joint meetings.

 

Application Process:

Applications will be accepted via the Meridian Innovation Exchange and opened on 1st September 2021.

The closing date for applications was extended to close of business on 24th September 2021
