SW AHSN Improvement Expert Joins Over Two Hundred Q Community Members for Q Welcome Event
On Thursday 20 October, Jo Gajtkowska, Programme Manager – Improvement at the South West Academic Health Science Network (SW AHSN) joined over two hundred other new Q members from around the UK for the Q Community Welcome event in London.
Jo, who has extensive knowledge and experience in improvement, met fellow Q Community members to spend some time together to consider how to use the community to share ideas, enhance skills and make changes that bring about sustainable improvements to health and care.
Q, led by the Health Foundation and supported and co-funded by NHS Improvement, and supported by the SW AHSN, is a diverse, national community of quality improvers with the aims of bringing together and connecting a diverse community of people working across health and social care in the UK.
Jo Gajtkowska, Programme Manager – Improvement said: “The Q Community Welcome event was an incredibly valuable event. The improvement work being led by people working in health and social care is instrumental in making a difference to people and it is so important we share our ideas and learn from each other. I’m really looking forward to working with the other community members both nationally and locally and being part of growing the Q community.”
In partnership with the Health Foundation, the SW AHSN will now be inviting people working in improvement across the South West to apply to join the growing and inspiring Q network. The application process will officially start on 03 November 2016. If you are interested in learning more about Q and how you can become part of this community. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
