‘Be the Change’ launched in February 2014 as a programme conceived by junior doctors (F1s), based on social movement theory and inspired by the national NHS Change Day.
We aim to empower all staff to identify quality improvement opportunities in their own areas and to empower people to make improvements themselves.
The vision for the programme is that it enables:
- A structure that empowers all staff to come forward with ideas for change and improvement
- ‘Bottom-up’ change to be accessible to all staff who wish to participate
- Opportunities for Change Champions to develop in their roles
- Successes to be celebrated
If you are interested in getting involved in the programme, or if you are just looking for some support or inspiration to get started, there are a number of ways to do it.
Anyone who would like to learn more about Quality Improvement can do so by coming along to one of our QI Open Sessions or we would be happy to come and talk to you. Either get in touch here or you can check when the next open sessions are via the Events page.
If you have an idea for improvement or if you have identified a problem that impacts on patients and/or staff – you can get in touch here. Submit your idea for improvement using the ‘Be the Change’ portal and you will receive a response from a member of the team ASAP.
If you are ready to get started with your project, there are a number of useful resources, including the ‘Be the Change’ project pack to help guide you through the process.
