Learning from Nightingale London: Implementing a Learning Systems Approach

7 July 2020, 12:30-1:30 | ONLINE EVENT
Learn about Nightingale London's approach to capture and share learning, and how this could be applied more widely across health and care.

What is a learning system? How was the approach used in setting up the Nightingale London in response to the COVID-19 crisis and what lessons can we implement more broadly? In the first of our lunchtime learning series, Doing Things Differently, we will learn about the approach taken by the team at the Nightingale London and how they used this to introduce agile improvements over time. In learning from what was done here, we will explore what lasting lessons there are for teams and organisations who want to implement a similar approach themselves.

Speakers and panelists

  • Jenny Shand, Director, UCLPartners & Executive Lead at Care City
  • Richard Bohmer, Senior Visiting Fellow, Nuffield Trust
  • Dominique Allwood, Assistant Director, the Health Foundation and Consultant in Public Health Medicine and Quality Improvement, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust
  • James Mountford, Director of Quality, Royal Free NHS Trust
  • Andrew Wragg, Director of Quality and Safety, Barts Heart Centre, Barts Health NHS Trust


There will be a brief presentation at the start of the session to introduce the approach, followed by a panel discussion and opportunity for open questions from participants. If you have any questions you would like to submit ahead of the session, please include them when you register.

The session will be held on Zoom and you will require a link and password to join. This will be circulated to all registered participants 24 hours before the event starts.

About the series

Doing Things Differently is a series of virtual sessions hosted by UCLPartners looking at how the experience of managing the COVID-19 pandemic can be used to deliver care differently in future. The emerging nature of the crisis required teams and organisations to adopt an agile approach and change the way they worked, which has resulted in episodes of excellence that we can all learn from.

Each session will have a different topic focus and/or setting, but the lessons will have broad interest and applicability.
