King’s Health Partners

King’s Improvement Science

King’s Improvement Science [KIS] aims to help health professionals and NHS managers improve NHS services in south-east London.

The specialist team of improvement scientists was set up in 2013 by King’s Health Partners, an academic health science centre comprising three NHS organisations and King’s College London.

Initially, KIS team members carried out quality improvement projects at the three NHS organisations that are part of King’s Health Partners: Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. The projects were instigated and led by health professionals.

Now KIS is supporting the three NHS trusts’ individual quality improvement and ‘transformation’ plans and proposals. In addition, the KIS team is developing resources and training to support quality improvement projects.

KIS is funded by King’s Health Partners organisations until the end of 2018.
