The Health Foundation is an independent charity working to continuously improve the quality of heatlhcare in the UK


In brief

GenerationQ is a pioneering leadership programme, designed to develop a new generation of Health Foundation Fellows who are skilled and effective leaders of quality improvement in healthcare.

It builds on the knowledge and experience we have gained from managing a wide range of leadership development programmes. Evaluation of these programmes shows that improvement is best achieved by leaders who have both personal and quality improvement skills.

GenerationQ develops leaders who understand how complex health systems work and who inspire others to transform healthcare quality and bring about sustainable, system-wide change.

Key points

  • GenerationQ is a fully-funded part-time leadership programme.
  • The programme is delivered in partnership with respected leadership development providers Ashridge and Unipart Expert Practices (part of The Unipart Group).
  • The programme is an opportunity for talented, senior people working in healthcare to gain an Ashridge-accredited postgraduate qualification (certificate, diploma or MSc).
  • Fellows are sponsored by an appropriate senior member of their organisation who work with them throughout the whole process.
  • The personal study time required to complete GenerationQ is an average of 10-25 hours of study per month over an 18 month period (two years for the MSc).

GenerationQ has now closed for applications.

“Right across the NHS there is extraordinary talent and passion for improving the quality of care. The Health Foundation supports and empowers great leaders to inspire and facilitate a new culture of improvement.”

Professor Sir Bruce Keogh, Medical Director of the NHS in England

Kind regards
For the pas 17 years, i have been working as a clinical dietitian at a major government hospital in Malaysia . How do i go about applying for this programme as i really want to improve patients' care at my workplace?.

Dear Dr Romzi Mohd. Ali

Thank you for your message. Unfortunately this programme is only open to those working in the UK health service, so you would not currently be eligible to apply from your position in Malaysia.

I am sorry that we can't be of more help.

Best wishes
