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.
Anybody can apply to be a member, and those who are successful in completing the training programme will become a QuIPPs member.
We are committed to making reasonable and practical arrangements so that everyone can effectively participate in the QuIPPs programme.
Discover more about how our first QuIPPs training day went in our Patient Leader's – Jono Broad – blog.

Applications for our 2018 cohort are now full. If you are interesting in applying for a future intake, please email QUIPPS@swahsn.com.
