This Week: Edition 105


It’s been a very productive week here at Haelo HQ! Becky White, Communications Assistant, tells us what’s got the team chatting in a jam packed This Week…

New Starters

We would like to extend a warm welcome to our new starters Dr Cameron Whytock and Dr Hannah Baird.


Cameron says: I’m looking forward to being part of the Haelo team and learning more about the science of improvement. I’m eventually considering a career in anaesthetics but may explore public health as an alternative career option. In my spare time I enjoy tennis and play for my local club in Didsbury. I also played a lot of piano in the past and are looking to find the time to sit down and play more often. As I mentioned I’m excited about joining Haelo and here’s hoping I can help make a positive difference within the team.

Hannah says: I will be working at Haelo part time working over the next two years whilst also working clinically at Royal Bolton Hospital. Whilst at Haelo I will be working on the Patient Safety Briefing and also on scaling up TIPS (Trainees Improving Patient Safety) through Quality Improvement, a teaching programme for Junior Doctors in the North West and Mersey region.

Festival season is coming to an end but not for Haelo. This week we focus on the fantastic workshop running in November alongside Haelo Hosts.

Science of Improvement Masterclass

Are you committed to going the extra mile? Do you work in a system that you want to improve? Have you tried to improve and became frustrated by the pace of change?

This one-day programme gives a comprehensive overview of the science of improvement and provides detailed insight in to its application, including examples from right here in Salford.

This unique opportunity will develop your knowledge of improvement science; enabling you to apply improvement techniques to change the way you work and improve outcomes for patients. The day is designed primarily for Doctors with an interest or role in quality improvement, but the content will be of interest and applicable for anyone involved in improving health and care.

Lights, Camera, Improvement 

Telling your improvement story using film to capture and share knowledge

Digital media has revolutionised the way we live our lives, empowering citizens and providing opportunities for gaining new information. This session will be led by Haelo’s Film Unit, who work across all Haelo’s functions to ensure film is at the heart of its work. The Haelo team uses film to set the scene for improvement, capturing patient stories that get to the very heart of the improvements we’re trying to make.
