Clinical Quality Academy


The Trust is launching its first ever Clinical Quality Academy to support clinically led teams to deliver quality improvement ideas, teaching the very latest thinking in the Science of Improvement.

What is it?
Designed for Consultant or SAS Doctor led teams with a patient-focused improvement idea, the academy will deliver an intensive improvement of teaching, action learning and coaching. This will guide you through planning, testing, implementing, and sustaining your project.

In partnership with University of Central Lancashire participants will receive Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points for their work and publication of results will be supported.

Who can apply?
Effective and lasting improvement is usually brought about through a committed team effort. The application should be submitted by the Consultant lead and should identify 4 other people from the multi-disciplinary team. It is recommended that one of the team has skills in project management and / or the ability to manage data requirements of the project.

We are committed to racial equity and we especially encourage members of our BAME community to apply.

How and when?
Closing date for applications: Friday 20th August 2021
Interviews: 2nd and 3rd September 2021

Teams will be required to attend a three-day workshop on 20th, 21st and 22nd October. There will then be a further six 1-day workshops and a summit event by July 2022. Attendance will be expected at all events (please see supporting information).
