The Q Improvement Lab offers a bold new approach to making progress on health and care challenges.
Working on a single challenge for 12 months, the Q Lab brings together organisations and individuals from across the UK to pool what is known about a topic, uncover new insights and develop and test ideas.
Although it would be understandable, the health and care sector is not in paralysis in response to complexity; great work is happening right across the UK led by innovators and improvers from all backgrounds. The Q Lab seeks to bring something new and complementary to this busy world of improving health and care
The Q Lab’s first project explored what it would take for peer support to be more widely available. The Lab’s second project is in partnership with Mind – the mental health charity, and starts in September 2018.
