‘One Thousand Ideas’ is a three-month long programme enabling patients, users and staff to identify up to 1,000 practical opportunities for improved service delivery.

The initiative, which can be tailored to specific Trust needs, includes an implementation toolkit for use in all staff/PPI situations including expert patient groups and Foundation Trust member groups.

The creative kit offers ways of generating and capturing ideas from patients and staff; visual methods to communicate Trust service principles and employee commitments; means of capturing and communicating outputs and outcomes along with training tools needed to sustain a service improvement culture.

Materials available for ready customisation include:
• Service aims and employee commitments aligned to current NHS imperatives
• ‘Tablemats’ for collecting ideas in focus groups
• Posters
• Checklists promoting ideal customer care behaviour
• Advice on collecting, disseminating and managing ideas
• Challenge cards to use in communication meetings and training.

Expected outcomes from implementing One Thousand Ideas include improved results on national patient and staff feedback surveys; focused engagement of patients/users in contributing to service improvements; staff involvement (and training) for identifying improvements to patient and colleague care.

The programme has been rolled out in an acute Foundation Trust and a London teaching hospital.

Chelsea & Westminster NHS Trust won the 2005 Health Service Journal Communication Award for evidenced service improvements resulting from this latest initiative from London-based Echelon, a specialist in advising healthcare providers on improving board effectiveness and service delivery.

Now Echelon’s blended learning based on a bespoke site populated with material selected to support specific courses, builds knowledge prior to the event and refreshes application when back at the desk.
