Would you be interested in being an assessor for Q Exchange 2019?
Following on from the success of Q Exchange 2018 we have reviewed the programme and it launched again in June. This year we are hoping to build on the pilot year, not only by opening the vote to the whole community via an online vote but also involving more members and partners throughout the process.
We would therefore like to invite you to be involved by taking part in the shortlisting panels in August and September.
What is Q Exchange 2019?
This year there is a total of £600,000 funding available, jointly supported by the Health Foundation and NHS Improvement and we will be seeking project ideas on two themes:
• Building improvement capability across boundaries
• Understanding alternatives to traditional outpatient appointments
Up to 30 projects will be shortlisted to go forward to the Q community online vote in October when members will decide which projects should receive funding with the winners being announced at the UK-wide Q community event in November.
More details about the process and timeline can be found on the Q website (https://q.health.org.uk/get-involved/q-exchange/).
How can I get involved?
This year we are trialling a new approach to shortlisting that will bring together the collective wisdom of the community to build the shortlist. We would value you input and we hope that being involved in shortlisting will be an interesting and collaborative experience.
Below is a briefing note that explains the person specification and requirements for taking part in the shortlisting process. If you would like to take part please read the briefing documents and complete the short online form. We will use this information to put together the shortlisting panels.
If you have any questions or would like further information, please get in touch with the Q Exchange team Qexchange@health.org.uk
