Q Community

Opportunities to join Q for people working or volunteering in HSC are NOW OPEN until 11 September 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 partnership in N Ireland is being led by the HSC Safety Forum

The Q community is made of up 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. The HSC Safety Forum has partnered with the Health Foundation and is helping to grow the community in N Ireland. Opportunities will be open from 3 August until 11 September 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.
