Collecting improvement stories


During 2006 the NHS Institute issued a series of Focus on: high volume care publications each designed to support specific or system improvements in particular clinical areas (eg Primary Hip and Knee Replacement; Caesarean Section). The study examined four sites which had been involved in the co-production of the publications and gathered information about the particular improvement ‘story’ of that site including the perceived impact of the interaction with the NHS Institute


The report (yet to be published by the NHS Institute) contains four stories which could be used as teaching material or as additional useful material to initiate and support improvement
