We’re pleased to celebrate ten years of our Advancing Quality (AQ) programme, with October 2018 marking a decade of supporting the delivery of high-quality care across the North West.
Launched in 2008, AQ is our flagship reliability of care programme, and works with Trusts across the region to provide evidence based approaches and reduce variation, so that the highest quality of care can be delivered to every patient, every time.
To mark the occasion, we’ve produced an infographic timeline of some of the key achievements for the programme, and how we’ve helped Trusts over the last ten years. We’ll also be sharing some of these on social media via the hashtag #AQ10years.

Earlier this year HEE launched a Commission on the wellbeing and mental health of staff and learners in the NHS. In its first phase, the Commission has reviewed the published literature around workplace wellbeing for students, apprentices and trainees who will form the future NHS workforce, and for the people who are already part of that workforce.
The Commission wants to hear directly from individuals and organisations with the knowledge and experience to inform our thinking and to help us develop recommendations for improvement that will be published as part of the Commission report.
We want to hear from the whole range of stakeholders in the NHS workforce including students and learners, staff, educational and professional bodies, employers, patients and the public about the challenges within the system and find examples of good practice.
