  • Hi all,

    We have a bid shortlisted to co-design a Quality Coach development programme which would be freely available to all Q members. This is something that we have been discussing in our STP QI forum and also within my own organisation for some time. Having accessible local support, beyond a central team, is a real necessity for embedding…Read more

    Hi everyone
    Our idea is The Virtual Hug of Support (in the alternatives to traditional outpatient model section).
    We are already working very differently in how we deliver outpatient care – through this a big gap was identified with our patients in how they access and receive healthcare information to better self-manage alongside the outpatient c…Read more

    • Dear Matthew,

    Good luck everyone.
    Take care

    • Thanks Anna. Am on holiday so a bit frantic but think it’s done. Just a quick question about Executive sponsor/Lead. Does it have to be an exec or would an appropriate Head of Department be sufficient? Best wishes

    • Hi Seema, a Head of Department is perfectly sufficient. Thanks, Zoe

    • Thank you Zoe

    • Also, I wondered if we’re meant to receive anything via email acknowledging that our proposal has been submitted successfully. Once I pressed submit it did take me to a page on the Q site to say it had been accepted so maybe it’s all gone through ok but thought I’d check!

  • Hi all, I’m currently having a final pass over my groups Q Exchange bid and was looking for any last minute feedback as we build the project timeline. Our aim is to take ‘Kaizen Bursts’ to lower paid front line staff, who we have identified as being a staffing group that is often missed in training sessions and improvement courses due to lack of…Read more
