Quality Improvement

The Trust has introduced a Quality Improvement Approach which outlines i’s journey to fully embed a culture of Quality Improvement.

We currently use the following tools;

  • The PDSA Model – used by the majority of small projects, Plan Do Study Act provides a structured way for small incremental changes to be tested so that any improvements can be verified and adopted and similarly any failures can be learnt from.

  • Always Events – based on the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), the framework supports the organization to identify, develop, and achieve improvement centered around the patient and family.


  • Additional expertise is also available to large projects from our QSIR Practitioners and other specialised staff across the Trust including process mapping, data analysis, fishbone diagrams, action plans, etc

The use of Quality Improvement Charters enables the Trust to track what work is taking place and learn the lessons for future projects with the goal  of celebrating all the fantastic work which is being undertaken..
