Quality Network

The Quality Network aims to share successes and lessons learned from quality improvement (QI) work, help fellows and members to develop their QI knowledge and increase their confidence to undertake improvement projects.  

Many departments are working on similar QI aims, and there is a lot we can learn from each other.  The quality network aims to give our members a peer to peer network to coordinate, share and spread ideas and resources. This includes the sharing of best practice, and signposting training and project opportunities.

Regional Leads

The network is led by a group of Regional Leads who facilitate local communication and take an overview of what is going on in their region. To contact your regional lead please email qualityimprovement@rcoa.ac.uk

If you are interested in becoming a Regional Lead for any of our vacant regions, you can find out about the role and its responsibilities here.  To apply for a position, please send a copy of your CV and a cover letter outlining your experience and interest in QI to qualityimprovement@rcoa.ac.uk
