Focus: Communications - Site Visit -

Tony Hodson

Last month, the independent charitable foundation the King's Fund announced its planned £1m-a-year investment in the Partners for Health in London grant-making scheme.

A new website, which was recently launched by its president, the Prince of Wales, is intended to act as a "vital source of information for policy-makers, the media and the public".

Main pages

The foundation's homepage is simple, stylish and effective, allowing visitors to gain access to all of the site's main areas - health topics, news, resources and funding information - with one click.

The ease with which users can navigate the site belies the significant volume of research, news and data that is contained within it. The health topics area arranges all of the organisation's analysis, projects and comment by issue (including mental health, primary care and waiting lists) and is relentless in its provision of information.

Special features

The King's Fund produces regular publications and reports on healthcare policy and practice, all of which can be purchased from the website. Impressively, many of these documents are also downloadable in full and free of charge - those that are not have a detailed summary available.

Helpfully, users can also sign up to receive regular email updates from the fund on its latest developments, events and publications.

The King's Fund says

"We believe the new website is more than just a technical tool - it will enable us to change the way we work. We hope this virtual King's Fund will transform the way in which we communicate, network and engage with the people who use our services."
