Egham, Surrey, UKLearning NewsAmnis

The first masterclass in a series of five being run jointly by the specialist healthcare quality, innovation and productivity improvement enabler, Amnis, and the Institute of Healthcare Management (IHM) has been hailed a resounding success, with all the delegates rating the programme as ‘excellent’ or ‘very good’.

The programme focused on the problems of introducing Lean and Service Improvement methodologies into healthcare organisations and was called ‘Service Improvement & Lean for Managers and Executives’. Participants came from a variety of primary and secondary care organisations as well as from private organisations.

Jeremy Morris, one of the delegates, said: “The session was clear, well run, participative and engaging. I found the clarity and practicality of the approach excellent.

“There are many things that I will take away from today, including the key experiences from other participants.”

Mark Eaton, of Amnis, said: “It was great that everyone derived so much from the session. It is further proof of the benefits of sharing knowledge and experiences both between similar organisations and across health economies.”

The IHM’s Phil Slinger said: “This was a great start to our programme with Amnis and I am delighted by the excellent feedback and testimonials. We’re already discussing running a similar programme in Scotland and are already planning our programme with Amnis for 2010.”
