Quality Improvement Training

The Quality Improvement team provides comprehensive training in improvement methodologies and a range of development opportunities for GOSH staff.

Whether you have an idea for a project or want to learn more about QI, we offer a series of practical sessions, services and tools to support improvement across the Trust and in local areas. These courses and services are available to all staff within the Trust.

New courses coming in 2024

For those wishing to undertake their own local QI project, we also offer a mentorship programme to support staff with the knowledge and resources to run their own improvement project with support and guidance from the QI team.

You'll take the lead in planning and delivering improvements. We'll provide expert advice, offer training opportunities, and support you to use data to measure the impact of your work.

To request mentoring or project advice, please complete the SmartSurvey request form and a member of the QI Team will be in touch.

Bespoke sessions

If you're interested in running a QI session for your team, we can often accommodate bespoke sessions focused on one or more of the topics we teach.

Please email us to discuss designing a bespoke session. Please note we do not currently offer facilitation of team away days.
