This is a Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) competition funded by NHS Scotland. Successful applicants will receive 100% funding and have access to advice from NHS Grampian.
The aim is to increase availability of psychological care at Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital for children and young people (CYP) with significant gastrointestinal symptoms but no underlying medical disease. Where there are no biomedical solutions, digital psychological support allows CYP and their families to self-manage symptoms and live a fuller life.
Your proposed solution must adjust to individual needs in ways that are engaging and effective.
This is phase 1 of a potential 2-phase competition. A decision to proceed with phase 2 will depend on the outcomes from phase 1. Only successful applicants from phase 1 will be able to apply to take part in phase 2.
We expect phase 1 projects to range in size and to be in the region of up to £10,000, including VAT. Projects must start by 21 October 2020 and last up to 3 months.
