We are delighted to announce that 352 new members joined the Q community.

Through Q we are connecting a diverse range of people, who have improvement expertise, to form a UK-wide community. Q is making it easier for people to come together to share ideas, enhance skills and collaborate to make health and care better.

Our newest members join us from the North East and North Cumbria, West of England and South West AHSN regions as part of a phased approach to growing the community. We now have 799 members, and expect to have a 2000 by the end of year.

There are on-going opportunities to join Q in 2017. As part of this, we have partnered with a number of organisations – Health Improvement Scotland, Public Health Wales, Health and Social Care Northern Ireland and in England the Academic Health Science Network (AHSNs).
