Thursday 15 June at 12 – 12:45pm and 3 – 3:45pm – Networking room 1: NHS Impact

NHS Impact team members will be on hand to explain NHS Impact and its 5 components. NHS Impact is the new, single, shared NHS improvement approach. Five components form the ‘DNA’ of all evidence-based improvement methods, which underpin a systematic approach to continuous improvement.

  1. Building a shared purpose and vision
  2. Investing in people and culture
  3. Developing leadership behaviours
  4. Building improvement capability and capacity
  5. Embedding improvement into management systems and processes.

When these five components are consistently used, systems and organisations create the right conditions for continuous improvement and high performance, delivering better care for people and communities.
