Today Nursing Times, Health Service Journal and NHS Improving Quality have launched a free interactive guide on how to achieve bottom up change in the NHS.
The NHS has often been accused of fire fighting rather than any strategic long term planning. Successful organisations in other sectors, for example Apple, have learnt to change fast and adapt quickly according to their clients’ behaviours.
Upon its launch, the Change Challenge had a brave task – to collectively bring out the wisdom of the public which would help any individual achieve change more effectively within the NHS.

A thematic analyses of the barriers identified in phase one of the Change Challenge has revealed 11 building blocks that can support bottom-up change. We can think of these building blocks as the design principles by which solutions can be developed.
