The QIPP collection on NHS Evidence (www.evidence.nhs.uk/QIPP) provided by NICE shows how staff are saving money without compromising quality.
If the examples in the collection were adopted by just 50% of eligible organisations, they have the potential to save the NHS over £1.85 billion.
The website also now includes a linkto a full list of all published QIPP case studies including a tool that allows potential savings to be calculated and sorted based on quality gains. This link can also be found within the introduction section of the QIPP web page.
The QIPP collection illustrates that there is no shortage of evidence-based, cost-saving, quality improvement initiatives in the NHS. However, they are always looking for more examples.
If you have a good initiative that you are currently implementing or have implemented already, they want to hear from you. NICE analysts will be happy to talk to you and provide advice on the suitability of your initiative for the collection and the type/level of information required.
