Executive quality and safety academy (EQSA)

This is a two-day event aimed at chief executives and a team of executive/non executive directors.

The course guides you through a framework of seven leadership leverage points. The team will have time to work together to develop plans against the leverage points. You will leave with a clear strategy for improving quality and safety in your organisation.

Chief Executive, Walsall Hospitals NHS Trust “Carrying out the EQSA programme together gave our medical director, chief operating officer/nursing director and me a great opportunity to focus on moving the patient safety agenda forward.  Since we completed the EQSA we have radically restructured our governance, performance and service improvement arrangements and published a new quality strategy, which aims to reduce mortality, improve patient safety and patient experience and reduce length of stay.  The EQSA gave us the momentum to make this radical change and without it, I doubt we could have achieved a consensus on the way forward.” Chief Executive, Stockport NHS Foundation Trust"This was the most thought provoking programme I have ever experienced.  It offers a new approach to the quality agenda, which challenged our thinking."
