Patient Group Bursary Scheme
October 18, 2013
Sanofi has a longstanding and successful track record of working in partnership with patient groups and the NHS to meet the needs of healthcare professionals and patients. In 2011, we announced the launch of a new Patient Group Bursary Scheme and the successful winners of the 2011 awards were Breakthrough Breast Cancer / Breast Cancer Care and The Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Trust who were awarded £25,000 each to support programmes throughout the year.
To develop this commitment further, we continued to support patient groups in 2012 with bursaries awarded to Ataxia UK, Crohn's and Colitis UK and Muscular Dystrophy Campaign. The three successful applicants received grants to the value of £25,000, £15,000 or £10,000.
We are delighted to announce the winners of the 2013 Patient Group Bursary Scheme with grants awarded to Anaphylaxis Campaign (£25,000), Brittle Bone Society (£15,000) and Tommy's (£10,000). The three successful charities demonstrated innovation, ambition and on overwhelming commitment to delivering improvements in patient empowerment and information.
