CNWL were one of the pilot sites of the education programme with our pilot delivered by Geetika Singh (Head of QI), Sid Beech (QI Training Lead – CLCH) and Bridget Browne (Improvement Advisor CNWL). Bridget, formed part of the core design and pilot faculty.

The programme has been designed to be free for all health and care providers to support building their improvement capability and has pooled the QI knowledge of more than 25 national experts.

Geetika, Head of Quality Improvement at CNWL said: 

"Designing the Improvement Coach Development Programme was a fabulous example of collaboration and partnership working, as it brought multiple healthcare organisations together (CLCH, CNWL and the Q-Community).

We were honoured to be part of this journey and receive national recognition at the HSJ Partnership Awards for 2023 as a finalist in the Best Educational Programme for the NHS category. The QI team are focused on supporting teams in improving patient care and staff experience, and this nomination has further boosted our drive and efforts to do the same"

The HSJ Partnership Awards recognise and honour the most effective partnerships, innovative projects, and collaborations in the UK health system. It’s a celebration of success stories, but also a platform to shape the future of our new integrated health and care system.
