Approach

Bringing together expertise, knowledge and best practice

This Improvement Hub has a mixture of over 30 programmes of work that support improvements in aspects of care delivery services and support the development of infrastructures and cultures which enable the work of improvement. We also have a tailored and responsive improvement support team that provides flexible improvement support to help NHS boards and Health and Social Care Partnerships address local priority issues. Finally we have a small grants making arm that provides resources for organisations to test and develop approaches to improving health and social care services.

Underpinning the Improvement Hub is the amalgamation of three existing and complementary health and social care improvement teams - Healthcare Improvement Scotland’s Safety and Improvement Team, and the Scottish Government’s Joint Improvement Team (JIT) and Quality and Efficiency Support Team (QuEST). The Improvement Hub is part of Healthcare Improvement Scotland.
