​​The Q Initiative​​


Opportunities to join Q for people working or volunteering in Kent, Surrey and Sussex will be open from 11 May until 12 June 2017.

KSS QPSC is leading the recruitment drive to Q - 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.

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.
