About the Academy

The Gloucestershire Safety & Quality Improvement Academy was established at Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in June 2015.

Through our courses, our students are provided with the knowledge, the skills, the opportunity and the support to contribute to patient safety and to make practical improvements to the way we provide care in our hospitals.

Our aim is that our structured programmes will contribute to the development of a culture of continuous quality improvement within our Trust, where staff at all levels have the confidence to highlight areas for improvement and then have the skills, knowledge and support to be able to implement improvements.



The Quality Improvement Programme

The Quality Improvement Programme is about being the best that we can be. It's about taking the things that we know can be better and making a lasting improvement.

The programme has been structured so that Improvement Teams have access to a support network to help with the transition from learning to implementation of their new skills.
