Q is an initiative connecting people, who have improvement expertise, across the UK. It is led by the Health Foundation and supported and
co-funded by NHS Improvement.
Q’s mission is to foster continuous and sustainable improvement in health and care. We’re creating opportunities for people to come together as an improvement community – sharing ideas, enhancing skills and collaborating to make health and care better.
We are creating Q for the long term to support individuals and their existing improvement work, to benefit members’ organisations and the populations they serve. It is designed to complement and help connect other initiatives and networks.
This is an exciting time for Q as we begin to pilot a variety of activities and opportunities that will enable people to connect, exchange, collaborate and learn. Some of these will be led by the Health Foundation, with others led by members and partner organisations.
Q was developed in 2015 through a co-design process with 231 founding members, and will continue to be built and delivered with their input, and that of new members, through 2016 and 2017.
What do people think of Q so far?
