Peter Sowerby Foundation Testimonials

In February 2013 the Peter Sowerby Foundation announced a grant to the Institute of Global Health Innovation (IGHI) at Imperial College London. The purpose of the grant was to establish the Peter Sowerby Commission, with the objective of developing a strategy to bring together primary and secondary care data. The recommendations of this report are aimed at making faster and more certain progress, raising standards of care in that process. We also need to look locally at how the NHS, universities and researchers can gather and make best use of the data to improve care now and in the future, forging ahead at a faster pace and more innovatively than can ever be achieved nationally. We are grateful to the Peter Sowerby Foundation for making this commission possible and to the commissioners for their knowledge, advice and support.

Following the launch of our Doubling Survival by 2050 strategy at the Bank of England in December, we are making progress on our transformational project fundraising with a lead gift to expand our newly-launched Support Line, part of our Transforming Support programme. 
 Through the grant from the Sowerby Foundation we are aiming to inspire the next generation of GPs through this innovative way to help develop interest and knowledge in ovarian cancer and in time help improve early diagnosis.

"The course was informative, enjoyable, covering plenty of ground in just one day without feeling rushed at all. It came at a crucial time in our planning and thinking as a development team and was a very welcome pause for thought. Michelle was a brilliant facilitator and it was a real benefit to hear about her experiences across the sector."
