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