It’s been a long time since the Running Horse Group has been active. Life, as is said, can get the better of you! The Running Horse Group was originally comprised on paediatric trainees who recognised (back in 2011) that quality as a concept or a product was poorly delivered in training and service. They were the original disruptors of care, before that phrase was even coined 🙂
Since its inception, those involved the Running Horse Group have been passionate about improving the quality of care for children. However while social media and the digital era has made the world a much smaller place the ability to actually meet face-to-face seems to have become progressively harder.
The Health Foundation have kindly donated us a room in their Covent Garden offices on 25th May from Midday onwards. In conjunction with Dr. Susannah Pye (the National Medical Director’s Clinical Fellow at the Health Foundation) we’ve put together a programme to consider the past, present and future role of the RHG. However this event should be seen as open to all and there will be presentations from the improvement team at the Health Foundation, with a specific look at what’s been happening across the UK in relation to paediatric services. It’s going to be an opportunity to explore what can be achieved as a network of professionals interested in child health focused on leadership and management.
If you are interested in attending please do e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is an opportunity to step outside our hectic lives and take stock of bigger picture items which may be impacting on our services. Hopefully people will be able to stay around for evening drinks and food afterwards as well.
This event will be held at the Health Foundation, 90 Long Acre,WC2E 9RA from 12.00pm.
