The Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, NHS Improving Quality and the Health Foundation offer networked support for building capability in quality improvement in health education.
Regionally the team support the role of HEE in the East Midlands Partnership Organisations (EMPO), consisting of East Midlands Leadership Academy (EMLA), Strategic Clinical Networks (SCN), Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) and Public Health England (PHE).

The patient will see benefit from our work as we enable clinicians to bring about change in their own spheres of influence. We recognise that this may take some time before it impacts on the patient, but services and patient safety will improve as a result of the skills of the clinicians.
The learner will benefit from increased skills in their educators in quality improvement from our train the trainer events. They will also benefit from skills and confidence in quality improvement provided by our programmes and events. Finally all improvements made at HEE working across the East Midlands will benefit the learner as the organisation improves in its delivery of all functions.
The stakeholder will have up-to-date information on the activity of HEE working across the East Midlands as a result of the EMPO network and the information shared within it. NHS providers in the East Midlands benefit from the sharing of resources on quality improvement done by the team, and the development of learners and trainers in quality improvement.
The tax-payer will see their contribution reap greater returns as those working within the NHS have an increased understanding and ability to apply quality improvement methodology to improve safety and efficiency in their roles across healthcare. They will also see greater returns from HEE working across the East Midlands as the development work on the organisation leads to improved outputs.
