Connect passionate improvers to develop networks, exchange ideas and disseminate best practice.

The Improvement Faculty brings professionals together from across the healthcare economy and transgressing traditional boundaries to exchange ideas and best practice. The Faculty encourages an environment for peer support and empowers Fellows to become part of a mobilised force for improvement by:

  • Developing self sustaining improvement networks within Trusts to support the implementation of improvement products– i.e. productive ward.
  • Providing a forum for sharing, challenging and problem solving through:
    • the e-Fellows area of the current Improvement Faculty website
    • Mentoring and coaching other Fellows.
  • Expanding the reach of the Faculty by engaging clinicians at all stages of their career, for example doctors in training through developing links to the Institute of Healthcare Improvement's Open School initiative- an international network concerned with equipping health profession students.
  • Providing opportunity for Fellows to connect and learn from each other transgressing the normal organisational hierarchies.
