Inspiring improvement: what providers are doing to improve

(0)

Providers share their individual approaches to improvement in a series of videos.

We spoke to a number of trusts about their approaches to resolving the challenges that they face and taking opportunities for improvement. We asked them about the following areas: 

  • what they set out to improve and how they went about it
  • the impact that their outcomes have had on patients and staff
  • what learning their organisation can share
