HSCQI Network encourages teams to enter the Q Exchange in 20231 February 2023
Q Exchange is a £800,000 collaborative funding programme, supported by the Health Foundation and NHS England. Q members from across the UK and Ireland have the opportunity to develop and submit project ideas for up to £40,000 funding. Applications will be opening on Tuesday 14 February 2023,
Last year the Southern Trust were successful in securing Q exchange funding for three QI projects. Reflecting on their success Jacqueline Morton, Quality Improvement Head of Service for Southern Health and Social Care Trust (SHSCT) is encouraging Q Members working on QI projects across HSC to consider putting their ideas forward in Q Exchange.
“Q Exchange funding has provided our team with the opportunity to develop, test and assess the impact of their “BIG IDEAS” on patient care, safety and experience learning with and from the Q Community family across the UK. In Southern Trust we were delighted that three project proposals successfully secured funding: Project B+: Reducing Blood Testing Related Distress in Children; Competence, Confidence and Complex Needs Children and Getting Kids Hands on For Their Hearts
Hopefully Q Members in HSC will be successful again in Q Exchange this year.”
