QIPP – The NHS Quality, Innovation, Productivity and Prevention Challenge

In response to the financial challenge, the Department of Health established quality, innovation, productivity and prevention as the guiding principles to help the NHS deliver its quality and efficiency commitments, building on the progress made in implementing Lord Darzi’s Next Stage Review. Achieving these commitments has become known as the quality and productivity challenge (QIPP)

The NHS Quality, Innovation, Productivity and Prevention challenge – an introduction for clinicians.
This booklet is a useful overview of QIPP and  has been published to support clinical teams and NHS organisations to meet the quality and productivity challenge and provides ways in which NHS clinicians can all get involved in shaping the response locally. It is important that clinicians start to discuss with colleagues how to continue to improve the quality of care provided, and do so more efficiently. Clinicians can listen to patients and work closely with managers to make sustainable improvements. It includes case studies from hospitals in Oxford and Southampton.

NHS Evidence – QIPP 
A collection of evidence to support quality and productivity at a local level. giving real examples of how staff are improving quality and productivity across the NHS and social care. Also Cochrane topics drawn from systematic reviews by the Cochrane Collaboration that may help to inform local initiatives to address the quality and productivity challenge.

QIPP Network 
An NHS Networks Newsfeed supporting the QIPP agenda.

Department of Health
The Department of Health is taking forward work to develop a central resource base to gather evidence  on how to improve quality and save money, to support all levels of the NHS to make change happen,  and happen quickly and to revise the tariff and other payment mechanisms to reward quality not quantity
It will work with strategic health authorities to achieve savings, transform care pathways, reduce commissioner  spend and improve provider efficiency.
A national programme of QIPP workstreams has been set up to support clinical teams and NHS organisations.
