Quality improvement team

We work in partnership with national and charitable bodies, paediatric sub-specialty groups, paediatricians, clinical managers and networks - as well as children, young people and their families - to drive improvements in paediatrics services. Our QI programmes, including the National Diabetes Quality Programme, Epilepsy QI Programme and Medicines for Children, aim to support clinical improvement at both local and national levels.

We also support our members and the wider child health workforce to be at the forefront of continuous quality improvement through the online sharing hub QI Central, providing opportunities and resources to develop and share QI work and co-produce solutions with children and young people, and their families.

You can find out more on our QI and patient safety pages.
