NHS Confederation and the Health Foundation are partnering with the Q community to support local health systems to learn and improve.
NHS Confederation and the Health Foundation are pleased to announce that they are working in partnership with the Q community to support local health systems to learn and improve.
The NHS is facing an unprecedented range of workforce, financial and performance pressures and improvement is moving up the health and care agenda following the launch of NHS England’s new single, shared improvement approach. The need to build improvement skills and scale improvement has never been greater.
The new partnership will bring the improvement expertise of the Health Foundation and the networks and relationships of NHS Confederation together with Q’s membership community of over 5,000 people collaborating to improve the safety and quality of care.
Announced at NHS ConfedExpo on 14 June, the partnership will work with local health systems, supporting them to improve services together by developing and sharing their learning, expertise, experience and evidence.
Penny Pereira, Managing Director at Q, Matthew Taylor, Chief Executive at NHS Confederation and Jennifer Dixon, Chief Executive at the Health Foundation, said: 'This partnership will harness the strengths of each of our organisations. We want to help connect and further build a community of people with the skills needed to lead and scale improvement at system level at a crucial time for health and care.'
