Gold Level - Improvement Coach

The Gold Improvement Coach programme is designed to develop a network of staff across the Trust with a combination of QI & coaching skills who can help to embed and support local Quality Improvement Activities.

Quality Improvement is about making a real difference, directly or indirectly to patient care. It’s not about finding new clinical approaches (research) but about improving our own systems and processes to make them more patient focussed, efficient, timely or relevant to the latest clinical guidelines.  

The role of the Gold QI coach will help to support Improvers at a local level to help ensure the success of their Improvement work. The role will also work within the Specialty to ensure that the improvement efforts are focused on the areas that are most needed so that limited resource is appropriately directed.

Involvement in this first cohort also gives you the opportunity to play a part in shaping the role of the QI coach as well as its supporting and governance structure.

The Gold programme will also enable you to learn new skills or fine tune and use existing ones. It also provides an opportunity to become part of the wider Gloucestershire Safety & Quality Improvement Academy and be a founding member of the Gold Improvement Coach Network.
