The Q Lab brings people together from across the UK to work and make progress on complex challenges facing health and care.
Working on a single challenge for nine to 12 months, we use existing knowledge to develop an in-depth understanding of the issue, develop ideas, test solutions and share learning.
The first Q Lab challenge:
