​​The Q Initiative​​


Thank you to everyone who applied to join Q! We had a great response and are currently assessing the applications. We will be advising applicants on their success in the week commencing 14 August 2017.

In the meantime if you're interested in getting more involved in Quality Improvement work, please consider joining our Improvers Network.

What is Q

Q is an initiative connecting people who have health and care improvement expertise across the UK. Q is led by the Health Foundation and supported and co-funded by NHS Improvement.

The Q community is made up of a diverse range of people including those at the front line of health and social care, patient leaders, managers, commissioners, researchers, policymakers, and others.

Those interested in joining Q will need to demonstrate knowledge and experience of improvement and reflect on how they can benefit and contribute to the community.

Network of support

Q is not a taught programme, but a network of support for those already knowledgeable in undertaking improvement.

There is no membership fee or minimum time commitment. Q is designed to support busy people with their current improvement work, on-going development and promote their visibility as a leader of improvement.
