Eastern AHSN: NHS boards’ quality and safety leadership programme


14 / 06 / 2016

Investigations into several serious NHS failures have identified board dynamics as a key causal factor. Leadership from executives and non-executives is crucial in any improvement initiative. Research shows high-performing organisations tend to have quality as their top priority.

Eastern Academic Health Science Network, in partnership with the Advancing Quality Alliance (AQuA), has created a programme focusing on NHS boards’ quality and safety role. Based on AQuA’s experience of running similar projects, the programme brings together both executive and non-executive board members to explore how their organisation measures and monitors safety. 

The ultimate aim is to help organisations move from a retrospective recording of harm to a more proactive system that prevents harm in the first place.
