National Quality Improvement and Clinical Audit Network
National Quality Improvement and Clinical Audit Network (N-QI-CAN) is an independent body working collaboratively with national clinical audit and quality improvement bodies and regional networks. It is a recognised group within health and social care, but is not a direct function of the NHS England, the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) or any other similar body.
N-QI-CAN’s objectives will rightly reflect those of NHS England and HQIP where clinical audit is concerned, however N-QI-CAN retains its own independent voice. Recommendations made by N-QI-CAN are not binding on any other organisation. NQICAN has regional networks which include East Midlands. Areas covered include Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire Northamptonshire or Lincolnshire, along with Health Education East Midlands, East Midlands Academic Health Science Network and Clinical Audit Support Centre.
Staff working in GP surgeries and CCG’s are welcome to add system wide thinking when discussing Quality improvement.

The #150Leaders are affectionate name for those students who are accepted on to the programme.
