Opportunities to join the Oxford AHSN Q community open on 3 August 2017

Opportunities to join Q for people working or volunteering in the Oxford Academic Health Science Network region (Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes) will be open from 3 August – 11 September 2017.

Q is an initiative connecting people who have health and care improvement expertise across the UK. It is 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 frontline of health and social care, patient leaders, managers, commissioners, researchers, policymakers and others.

To ensure the community is grown in a manageable way, and to enable members to contribute to its evolving shape and design, opportunities to join Q are being phased across different parts of the UK. The Oxford AHSN Patient Safety Collaborative has partnered with the Health Foundation to grow a new Q community in the Oxford AHSN region. Opportunities will be open from 3 August – 11 September 2017.

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.

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.

More information about Q can be found at q.health.org.uk. Register via the website, or email JoiningQ@health.org.uk to be kept up to date and reminded when the opportunity to apply in the Oxford AHSN region opens.

Updates will also be posted in the Oxford AHSN Q Community section here.
