About the CHA Q Community Hospital Special Interest Group

We have created a Community Hospitals Special Interest Group within the Q Community. This is a rapidly growing network of practitioners and leaders with an interest in Community Hospitals.

The Q Community is funded by the Health Foundation and has been created with a focus on Quality Improvement in the NHS. We have been fortunate to have received grants from Q Exchange and Q Connections, to help us to research community hospitals, and use ways of sharing and learning. This has included a focus on growing our CH SIG network.

We invited our SIG members to tell us what they value in the SIG and what they would like in the future.  Thank you to all who contributed.
