Quality Improvement & Safety Director
Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation TrustEngland - West
I work in the field of Quality & Safety in a large Acute Trust .
With my improvement team we have developed the Gloucestershire Safety & Quality Improvement Academy (GSQIA) , designed to build in-house capability for QI and safety management - This is about taking practitioners and helping them make real improvement - not just another training course! Our main focus this year is to develop embedded QI coaches in departments and change the Quality Monitoring (Clinical Governance) process to embrace improvement.
My main formal networks are with the West of England Academic Health Science Network, Foundation Doctor QI, our own network through the academy and Q
I like to be practically involved in improvement projects, teaching and coaching and taking theory in to practice - making a difference in practice
