What is CLIC?

CLIC is our learning and improvement collaborative in North Cumbria. It is a shared ‘umbrella’ initiative which exists to develop a positive transformation in health and social care across the area by leading and embedding a culture of co-production for continuous learning, continuous improvement, and living within our means – with our people and for our people.

We have adapted learning from Jönköping, the North East Transformation System, Virginia Mason Medical Centre, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, the NHS Leadership Academy, and NHS Improving Quality, and pooled knowledge from all our members to devise a joint and common way to talk, think, learn and practice leadership and continuous improvement.

CLIC is designed to help you achieve your objectives, clearing away barriers of any kind by sharing experiences, skills and innovations and supporting (and improving) the partnership organisations in doing what needs to be done to help NHS and care staff succeed and help to achieve the right outcome for the people we serve.

CLIC’s first 3 key priorities relate to:

  1. Developing the right skills to provide the best care
  2. Building our improvement knowhow and engaging people in leading improvements
  3. Building collective leadership across the system, growing compassionate leaders who role model behaviours and create effective teams
