Adopt and Spread Programme

Working nationally across Wales and taking the learning global

The Bevan Commission, working in collaboration with health organisations are testing approaches for the adoption and spread of innovation. Building on our work over the last 5 years with the Bevan Exemplar Innovations, we are excited to announce the new cohort of innovators and adopters in the brand new Adopt and Spread Programme 2020. This programme is supported with funding by the Welsh Government.
