Mission Statement

Our mission is to promote quality improvement by facilitating training and uptake of quality improvement projects amongst trainees in the South West region, with aims of improving patient safety, experience and efficiency.

Our Vision

Our vision is to create a vibrant and sustainable learning culture and environment, build on the energy and enthusiasm for evidence-based change, and promote improvement learning within the NHS.  Through strong relationships with Plymouth University, Exeter University, Severn Postgraduate Medical Education and the South West Academic Health Science Network, we will be recognised as an academic hub and a leading centre for innovation, training and research.

Who We Are

The South West Quality Improvement Group is a specific group within the Health Education - working across the South West governance framework, comprising primarily of clinicians from health care organisations within the South West. The group is chaired by Dr Pippa Blacklock, Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Specialist and Associate Dean. 

The remits of the group are to:

  1. Improve the quality of care for patients by delivering a better health and healthcare workforce, through the education, training and personal development of all staff and trainees.   

  2. Promote quality improvement and support changes that will lead to better patient outcomes (health), better system performance (care) and better professional development (learning).  

  3. Support a culture of seeking quality improvement, making this an intrinsic part of everyone’s job, every day, in all parts of the system.  

  4. Support trainees to undertake quality improvement work with aims of improving patient safety, experience and efficiency. 

  5. Offer training to facilitate uptake of quality improvement projects

  6. Set up a quality improvement website providing:

  • contact details of quality improvement champions within the South West 
  • information, internet links, tools and templates on how to start quality improvement projects
  • a database of quality improvement projects completed in the South West
