The Directory of Good Ideas

The Directory’s origin and purpose…a quick recap

The Directory of Good Ideas is the next stage of the Project A initiative.  It is one distillation from the initial Accelerated Design Event in June 2018 that involved hundreds of frontline ambulance staff.

The kick off event was followed by the development of the Ideas Channel and subsequent two day Innovation Burst, from which the Expert Panel identified six specific activities for further progression, shown below. One of these activities was the Directory of Good Ideas.

About the Directory of Good Ideas

We have been compiling a Directory of Good Ideas that showcases the work already ongoing in Trusts. The directory is in response to front line staff feedback: to share good ideas between trusts, and for senior leadership to help implement them.

While we will continue to add to this over time, we are pleased to share the first tranche of categories here, each of which links through to reports of individual projects underway, and their progress to date.

#ProjectA is an improvement programme led by front line staff, and we want to make sure it remains true to this ethos. Please do keep getting involved –  if you’re in the ambulance service keep an eye out for internal communications, and everyone can get involved via Twitter (@HorizonsNHS / #ProjectA).
