All NHS organisations and systems are being supported to embed an approach to improvement aligned with NHS IMPACT.

In April 2023, NHS chief executives asked for a jargon free NHS IMPACT self-assessment to help systems, providers and partners understand where they are on their journey to embed each of the five components of NHS IMPACT.

The NHS IMPACT team has co-designed this self-assessment tool and a maturity matrix for the five components. This should allow them to identify their strengths and opportunities for development when applying an organisational/system wide approach to improvement and provide a framework to build a development strategy.


An accessible version of the questions and a glossary of terms is available on the NHS IMPACT website along with top tips on how to complete the self-assessment.
