Q Community

We are delighted to welcome 93 new Northern Ireland Q Members

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 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.

All our Q members existing and new are invited to join us at the next Northern Ireland Q event on the 27th March 2018 at the Crumlin Road Goal, Belfast. This is an opportunity to meet other members of the Q community, share ideas and make connections for the future.

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.

Recruitment to Q will be opening again in Spring 2018 and you can get more information about this and register your interest  via the Health Foundation website: https://q.health.org.uk/join-q/).

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
