Congratulations to our most recent cohort of Improvement Fellows who graduated at the end of November.
Our Improvement Fellowship programme forms a core aspect of our transformation programme. Participants are selected through a competitive process, and benefit from a dedicated structured training programme. Over the course of the programme, they must each undertake an improvement project of their own, which they evaluate in a formal poster for the graduation event.
Once the Fellows have completed the programme, they act as improvement champions within the organisation, helping to embed a culture of improvement and initiating transformational change.
Particular congratulations are due to the winners and runners-up of the poster competition held on the day:
- Highly commended: advanced nurse practitioner John Ross, for his work on improving ambulance handovers
- Highly commended: Brent Integrated Diabetes Service team member Anganie Seecharan, for supporting patients to manage their condition more effectively
- People's Choice Award: Won jointly by John Ross for his ambulance handover work, and transformation programme coordinator Navina Nallamuthu for bringing music into medicine
- Overall winners: Clinical governance and patient safety team members Odud Miah, Laila Gregory and Homa Al-Hakim, along with matron Karen Keogh, for their work on improving learning from falls.
However, all the Fellows should be very proud of their improvement activity, and of becoming an improvement champion within the Trust.
The Fellows’ posters will be featured as part of the LNWH Improvement Fringe, a series of roadshows across our sites throughout January and February, where both staff and members of the public will be able to view their work, discuss improvement with a member of the transformation team, and even ask questions of the Fellows themselves.
