Corporate improvement team

What is the corporate improvement team ?

Visitors at South Tees Hospitals

The corporate improvement team was established in May 2003 and was originally known as the improvement alliance. It is a small team of improvement leads whose aim is to support staff within the organisation by developing their skills to assist them to improve and develop services.

The underpinning ethos of the corporate improvement team is to help build capacity and capability. We are sometimes descibed as the “service improvement team”. We are based in the Institute of Learning Research and Innovation at The James Cook University Hospital.

The specialist work of the corporate improvement team falls into four categories:

  1. Tools and techniques
  2. PPI
  3. Leadership
  4. Share and spread
