A new way for your voice to improve the quality of health and care services.
WHAT IS QuIPPs?
Quality Improvement Partner Panels (QuIPPs) has been developed by the South West Academic Health Science Network and will support the work of health and social care organisations by ensuring the voice of the public is involved in improvement projects.
The aim of the panels is to provide support and advice to health and social care teams working on range of quality improvement projects. These may be small improvements on wards, or in general practice and community settings, or on strategic planning for system wide implementation.
