NHS Sustainability Model

Back to Resources

The most successful organisations are those that can implement and sustain effective improvement initiatives leading to increased quality and patient experience at lower cost. The Sustainability Model and Guide has been developed to support health care leaders to do just that.

Health services around the world need to consistently deliver high quality care at lower cost and against rising expectations and demand. To achieve this we need to continually improve our existing health systems and processes. Any change requires a significant investment of time, financial resource and leadership effort. There is evidence that up to 70% of all organisational change fails to survive and that is just not acceptable when undertaking health care improvement.

The Sustainability Model is a diagnostic tool that will identify strengths and weaknesses in your implementation plan and predict the likelihood of sustainability for your improvement initiative.

The Sustainability Guide provides practical advice on how you might increase the likelihood of sustainability for your improvement initiative.
