​​The Q Initiative​​


​​​Q is an initiative, led by the Health Foundation and supported and co-funded by NHS England, connecting people skilled in improvement  across the UK.

Q is bringing together a diverse range of people  to form a community working to improve health and care. These people range from frontline staff, managers and researchers to policymakers and ‘patient leaders’. The aim is connect a critical  mass of people in order to radically expand and accelerate improvements to the quality of care. 

KSS PSC coordinated the founding cohort appointment process for our region. The founding cohort was appointed to help design and test Q during 2015. In early 2016 the design of Q was further refined, working with the founding cohort and other stakeholders. The design process informed wider recruitment, which started in some regions in autumn 2016. ​​​
