Health Accelerator Programme targets social entrepreneurs working in health

Said Business School : 27 November, 2007  (New Product)
Twelve participants, including GPs, therapy services managers, a management consultant, and a midwife, will be returning to the Said Business School at the University of Oxford tomorrow for the Health Accelerator Programme an entrepreneurial learning programme for social entrepreneurs working in health and the third sector.
Now in its second year, the programme, run by the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship based at Said, aims to support the development of new ventures start-ups or other efforts aimed at institutional change which put greater performance at their heart, and to enable entrepreneurial people to deepen their ability to deliver radical innovation and change

Participants on the programme already have a demonstrable track record of entrepreneurial action aimed at improving social impact but during the course of the programme they will also have an additional practical initiative to develop. These include:

- developing alternative methods for delivery of healthcare culminating in a new hospital or treatment centre;

- developing a new social enterprise aimed at improving the lives of families with disabled children;

- developing a model for funding Healthy Living Centres (HLC’s) in North Tyneside;

- an innovative midwifery partnership providing care based on psychological and emotional needs as well as the physical;
- the development of a network of practices as a social enterprise to provide primary healthcare to homeless and other marginalised groups.

Accelerator takes place over a year with four, three-day sessions using theory and case studies to examine how to become a social entrepreneur, designing enterprising solutions, implementing social venture models and managing the future.
