Access QI programme outline

The current phase of Access QI enables teams working across whole pathways to use the Access QI Improving planned care pathways toolkit to sustainably and affordably improve waiting times.

There are three tiers of support available to NHS boards participating in Access QI:

  • Support to planned care teams
  • Support to quality improvement coaches in NHS boards
  • Support to analysts in NHS boards

The first cohort of services to join Access QI were recruited in April 2021.  The first taught module starts in May 2021 and the final project workshop in March 2022. You can find more information about cohort 1 dates in the cohort one key information pack.

Recruitment for the second cohort of services is due to begin in June 2021. The second cohort will start the programme in August 2021 and the final project workshop is in June 2022. You can find more information about joining Access QI on the Join Access QI page.
