THE doctor-led group that buys in healthcare for Portsmouth is to earmark another £200,000 for schemes to improve the city’s health.

The Portsmouth Clinical Commissioning Group is inviting charities and not-for-profit organisations to apply for grants of no more than £30,000 each for projects running up to one year which meet its health priorities.

The move follows the near £250,000 allocated to 15 organisations for 17 projects last year.

Dr Jim Hogan, the CCG’s lead, said: ‘We had some fantastic schemes put forward last time which we supported because we felt they would make a real difference to the health and wellbeing of many people.

‘But there were a number of other schemes which just missed out last time – so I am delighted that we have managed to make available another £200,000 this year.’

The deadline for proposals is Friday, October 10.
