National praise for Quality Coach Development Programme, designed in partnership by CLCH, CNWL and the Q Community
Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust (CLCH), the Q Community (part of The Health Foundation) and Central North West London FT (CNWL) are delighted that the Quality Coach Development Programme was a finalist for the Best Educational Programme for the NHS at the HSJ Partnership Awards 2023.
The HSJ Partnership Awards recognise and honour the most effective partnerships, innovative projects, and collaborations in the UK health system. The prestigious award programme, now in its sixth year, is not just a celebration of success stories but also a platform to shape the future of new integrated health and care systems.
The judging panel comprised a diverse range of highly regarded figures across the NHS and wider healthcare sector. To be shortlisted as a finalist for these awards, despite tough competition from a pool of brilliant applications, is a mark of real achievement for the collaborative. The Quality Coach Development Programme was selected based on its ambition, and the positive impact that the project has had and will continue to have on both practitioners and patients.
Partners co-designed and developed the high-quality educational programme, which aims to enable organisations to independently build improvement capability at a local and system level. Since the programme started three years ago, 38 individuals from more than 25 organisations have contributed to its creation. Using their pooled expertise, partners created a robust eight session programme that covers key concepts related to coaching improvement work. The programme has been piloted five times with great success, and more than 25 organisations are planning to run it in the next 18 months. All teaching materials (slides, workbook, activities etc.) will be published shortly to support a national roll-out of the programme.
Sid Beech, Quality Improvement Lead at Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust commented:
“We are delighted to have been recognised for Best Educational Programme for the NHS, recognising the collaborative efforts and dedication of our teams to successfully implement the Quality Coach Development Programme. We are committed to delivering improved outcomes for patients, and to be chosen among the other incredible nominees is a wonderful achievement. This nomination has been a tremendous boost to our teams and I am sure it will bolster our continued efforts to improve.”
Alastair McLellan, HSJ editor said:
