Improvement support programme

NHS England have commissioned NHS Improving Quality (NHS IQ) to working work with and support eleven CCGs based in two localities to improve services for wheelchair users.

The work will help support the CCGs Wheelchair service improvement ambitions and will also create guidance, evidence and material which can then be shared with other organisations and communities.

The Alliance is really pleased to acknowledge that this work is in response to the Charter launched recently by the Wheelchair Leadership Alliance which sets out 10 key principles to transform the quality and effectiveness of wheelchair services across England.

The eleven CCGs are:

  • North Yorkshire:

    • NHS Harrogate and Rural District CCG
    • NHS Hambleton, Richmondshire and Whitby CCG
    • NHS Scarborough and Ryedale CCG
    • NHS Vale of York CCG
  • North West London:

    • NHS West London CCG
    • NHS Hounslow CCG
    • NHS Ealing CCG
    • NHS Central London CCG
    • NHS Hammersmith and Fulham CCG
    • NHS Barnet CCG
    • NHS Brent CCG


The work will be tailored to local needs and priorities and will be made up of bespoke support, lean methodology, and intelligent use of data and learning networks. While it will focus on support for commissioners, each project will involve partnership working with local providers, service users, the Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs) and other key stakeholders.

The project will begin with the CCGs in September 2015 and will run until March 2016.
