Communities of Practice

Supporting and nurturing Communities of Practice (CoP) to share learning and bring about change for the better

Project overview

Health Innovation Network hosts a variety of dynamic Patient Safety-focussed Communities of Practice (CoP).

Communities of Practice are groups of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do, who come together to voluntarily explore how to bring about change for the better, by focussing on patient areas affecting our member organisations. The work of these self-selecting communities will have a real impact on patient experience and outcomes.

Our vision is to drive such improvements across south London and to spread the innovation, ideas and best practices arising from our CoPs on a national or even international scale for maximum impact. To find out more about Communities of Practice, take a look at our brochure.

“I am delighted to be able to share with you this brochure describing the exciting work developing within our community of practice. I have recently taken over as the SRO of the Patient Safety strand of the Health Innovation Network (HIN) work and have been hugely impressed by the commitment and focus in this work. Driven by the single premise that all of our staff are motivated by patient safety and are full of ideas ready for sharing, the communities are an exciting and new development already creating real change.”Ann Radmore, Chief Executive, Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
