Q and Q Labs team Find out more about the people who help deliver the Q community and our Q Improvement Lab

Q helps promote improvement within the health and care system, encouraging and supporting a wide range of people to effectively lead improvement. It is co-funded by the Health Foundation and NHS Improvement. It was previously co-funded by NHS England.

The Q Lab’s current project, in partnership with Mind – the mental health charity – is focusing on the experiences of people living with both mental health problems and persistent back and neck pain, and how care can be designed to best meet their health and wellbeing needs.
