Who we are

5th Anniversary Celebration

Transforming health and care quality

AQuA’s vision for the future is that over the next decade we will support our members and customers to transform the health and quality of healthcare for the people they serve.

This means tackling the many challenges which we face in terms of the underlying health of the population and the way that services are currently organised and delivered. 

For non-member customers it means identifying how we can most add value to your work, whilst at the same time gaining new learning and insights that will be of benefit across the AQuA membership.
