Be The Change: UCL students win national NHS championship!

UCL Medical and Pharmacy students recently won the first ever Be The Change NHS Quality Improvement Championship: a national project to get healthcare students centrally involved in quality improvement in the NHS.


fig 8The initiative was borne out of the notion that medical students and allied healthcare professionals can see hospitals in a different light to managers. The competition was among all five London Medical Schools and took place in March in BMA House. The judging panel comprised of representatives from the Health Foundation, Department of Health, NHS England, McKinsey, Institute for Healthcare Improvement and Directors of all five London Medical Schools.

‘Team UCL’ was huge, well-coordinated, slick and produced some fantastic work. ‘Team UCL’ used a unique approach and newly designed digital solutions for project matching and efficient communication. Therefore, ‘Team UCL’ proposed a model how students can work, for free, with experienced professionals to improve patient care and make our NHS more efficient! Our victory was well deserved and we now have a trophy for the empty plinth in the cruciform hub.
