Quality, Innovation, Productivity and Prevention (QIPP) is an NHS initiative to improve the quality of care it delivers, while at the same time making savings that can be reinvested into the service.
QIPP engages with staff from across the NHS, at the local and regional level, and it is supported by QIPP plans and work streams that provide guidance and tools to help with successful implementation.
The NHS also works with a range of partners to deliver QIPP, one of which is the pharmaceutical industry. Apart from supplying medicines that improve the quality of patients’ lives and outcomes, the industry can contribute business skills and expertise, as well as provide extensive knowledge of the therapy areas relevant to its medicines.
Working with the Department of Health and the NHS, we have developed a toolkit on successful joint working. Joint working is a relatively new concept for many, but has already shown tangible benefits to patients, the NHS and industry, for example:
