Modernisation Agency chief returns to lead improvement drive

The director of the Modernisation Agency in the early 2000s is returning to lead a new national service improvement drive, NHS England has announced, while asking systems and providers to “baseline” their improvement needs and capability.

NHSE is establishing a “national improvement board” to oversee a new improvement programme called NHS Impact, as recommended by a review last year of the current infrastructure.

NHSE announced the board will be chaired by David Fillingham, who was director of the NHS Modernisation Agency from 2001-2004 where, NHSE said, “he focused on developing new practices and fostering leadership development”. 

The national improvement board will choose a small number of improvement priorities to be followed across national bodies and the wider health service. It will “set the direction of system wide improvement” through “collaboration and co-design,” NHSE said.
