Enabling improvement

The Improvement Hub (ihub) is part of Healthcare Improvement Scotland and was established in April 2016 to support those delivering health and social care across Scotland to redesign and continuously improve services to ensure they meet the changing needs of people in Scotland.

The ihub plays a key role in supporting services to deliver the vision outlined in the Health and Social Care Delivery Plan (Scottish Government, 2016) whereby people in Scotland can live longer, healthier lives at home or in a homely setting.

The ihub is helping to ensure that health and care services, across Scotland, continue to improve and evolve so that they can meet the changing needs of people that use them." Ruth Glassborow, Director of Improvement

Working in partnership

The ihub was established to support those who are delivering health and social care across Scotland, including Health and Social Care Partnerships, local authorities, NHS boards, third and independent care sector organisations, and housing organisations.

 

Expertise, knowledge and best practice

By working in partnership across Scotland, the ihub is helping design and implement services which enable people to receive the right support and care, in the right place, at the right time.

 

Making a difference

By promoting cultures of continuous quality improvement (QI), the ihub is supporting services to:

  • understand their high impact opportunities for improvement
  • design processes, care models and systems that will improve outcomes
  • implement changes that will lead to improvement, and
  • evaluate the impact of changes, embed change and spread learning.

 

Putting people at the heart of everything we do

All our work is co-designed, co-owned and co-delivered with our partners with the aim of building local improvement capacity to meet local need.
