Q is an initiative connecting people who have health and care improvement expertise across the UK. It is being led by the Health Foundation and supported and co-funded by NHS Improvement. Find out more with this interactive PDF.The Q community is made of up a diverse range of people including those at the front line of health and social care, patient leaders, managers, commissioners, researchers, policymakers, and others. More information about Q can be found at q.health.org.ukTo ensure the community is grown in a manageable way, and to enable members to contribute to its evolving shape and design, opportunities to join Q are being phased across different parts of the UK. Wessex AHSN has partnered with the Health Foundation and is helping to grow the community in Wessex. Opportunities will be open from 11 May until 12 June 2017.Those interested in joining Q will need to demonstrate knowledge and experience of improvement and reflect on how they can benefit and contribute to the community.Q is not a taught programme, but a network of support for those already knowledgeable in undertaking improvement. There is no membership fee or minimum time commitment. Q is designed to support busy people with their current improvement work, on-going development and promote their visibility as a leader of improvement.
Successful applicants will be invited to a Wessex Q welcome event which will be held on Tuesday 26th September. When we confirm more details we will post information here. If the attached documents do not answer your queries please email the PSC via email@example.com and we will try to help.
