Q Community

I have some exciting news I would like to share with you. You may have heard of Q* – it is an initiative being led by the Health Foundation and supported and co-funded by NHS Improvement. Through Q, people with improvement expertise are coming together to form a community – sharing ideas, enhancing skills and collaborating to make health and care better.

As part of a pilot phase, I successfully applied to join the community. I needed to demonstrate knowledge in, experience of and commitment to collaborative improvement.

I will be joining 445 others from across the UK – including those at the frontline of care, managers, researchers, commissioners, policymakers and more. It is hoped that by bringing together such a broad range of people working in health and care improvement, Q can be a vibrant source of innovation and practical problem solving for the system as a whole.

Over the coming months, I will be helping to test different ways the community will connect, share and collaborate on improvement challenges.

I will keep you in the loop about the different things I learn through Q and the connections I make. There will be more opportunities for others to join over the next 12 months. If you would like any further details I recommend visiting the Health Foundation website.


*Thanks to the Health Foundation for their suggested messaging about the Q Community.
