Opportunities to join the Q community are opening on 11 May

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

Q is an initiative connecting people who have health and care improvement expertise across the UK. It is being 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.

To ensure the community is grown in a manageable way, and to enable members to contribute to its evolving shape and design, opportunities to join Q are being phased across different parts of the UK.

KSS QPSC has partnered with the Health Foundation and is helping to grow the community in Kent, Surrey and Sussex. Opportunities will be open from 11 May until 12 June 2017.

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.

More information about Q can be found at q.health.org.uk. Register via the website, or email JoiningQ@health.org.uk to be kept up to date and reminded when the opportunity to apply in Kent, Surrey and Sussex opens. ​
