Leading for Change

Coming soon – This programme is sponsored by the NHS Leadership Academy and Eastern Academic Health Science Network and delivered by the Kings Fund and EoE Citizens Senate.

The programme has been designed to enable individuals who wish to be involved in the work of the Citizen’s Senate to gain the knowledge, confidence and understanding to sit at the decision making table and to be able to use their patient and citizen experience to influence and impact health and social care outcomes. Potential participants will come with a range of existing and related lived experience and knowledge of health and social care. We will be working with participants to build on and strengthen this base of knowledge and experiences. A key learning outcome is to support participants to become even more effective influencers and partners in the strategic and operational change processes that underpin the new emerging health and care system.

The programme is open to those involved in representing the patient and public voice in the east of England, including NHS PPI Leads. For further information contact [email protected]

Quality, Service Improvement and Redesign (QSIR)

Currently open – This suite of programmes provides clinical and non-clinical staff with the know-how to design and implement more efficient, patient-centred services. Based on tried and tested tools and approaches, it covers the breadth of service improvement skills.

​QSIR College is designed to develop candidates to become associate members of the QSIR Teaching Faculty and go on to skill up other staff within their local systems. Between 6 to 10 candidates will be drawn from the various organisations involved in the sustainability and transformation plan across up to 10 health systems.

Individuals nominated by their systems should be committed to working together across organisational boundaries to skill other staff up to undertake the quality and service improvements that will underpin delivery of the Five Year Forward View and have significant service and quality improvement skills and experience and be committed to working as a member of the local team rolling out the QSIR programme across their system.
