Systematic Quality Improvement

Improved quality means healthcare which is more effective, timely, efficient and safer than ever before. At present, evidence shows that healthcare is not always safe, with some patients and service users having poor experiences and outcomes.

Health and social care providers face the dual challenge of responding to this whilst simultaneously reducing costs and improving efficiency.

Although some organisations have adopted approaches such as Lean, many have failed to gain traction and make improvements that stick. Yet the benefits are clear – around 80% of NHS trusts rated ‘outstanding’ by the QCC have a systematic approach to quality improvement (QI).

Embedding QI requires a fundamental shift in how an organisation approaches work, re-positioning senior leaders into ‘problem framers’. By creating an environment in which problem solvers from all parts of the organisation can thrive, continued improvements in quality, cost and performance can be achieved.

Delivering the ambitions of the NHS Long Term Plan will rely on local health systems having the QI capability to develop new ways of working that deliver improved outcomes, efficiency and reduce unwanted variation in performance.

Systematic Quality Improvement

“Andrew (SBS) worked with me to lead a QI approach “The Big Room” that empowered front line staff to embed continuous improvement. The patient outcomes were amazing and I hope we can embrace this as a model for the entire NHS.”

Dr Jaweeda Idoo, Clinical Transformation Director, Stockport Neighbourhood Care
