To underpin the ongoing work of NHS IMPACT, a National Improvement Board has been set up which will bring together Executives, Directors, clinical leadership, and expert improvement science input from across the NHS landscape.
Collectively the National Improvement Board will set the direction of system wide improvement by bringing in the right stakeholders to achieve our shared aims through collaboration and co-design.
Working in collaboration the National Improvement Board will offer scrutiny to the overall approach to implementation, resolve challenges and drive change. In summary the National Improvement Board will:
Have a focus on creating the context in which continuous improvement is systematically used throughout the NHS to deliver better patient and staff outcomes.
Agree a small number of shared national priorities which, NHS England working collaboratively with providers and systems, will focus our improvement led delivery work with national coordination and regional leadership.
Provide support to implement a more consistent, high-quality delivery of services to improve performance and reduce unwarranted variation.
Work with NHS England partners to co-ordinate improvement expertise to support improvement delivery at pace.
