The Healthy NHS Board – 15 March 2010

“The NHS National Leadership Council has today launched The Healthy NHS Board: Principles for Good Governance, highlighting the critical role boards play in ensuring that quality, centred on patient safety, effective care and patient experience, is at the heart of the NHS.

Good governance is essential for the NHS and the guidance explains clearly what this means for health organisations and their boards.  Boards have three key roles – to formulate strategy, ensure accountability and shape a positive culture for their organisation.  Success is built upon a sound understanding of the local and national context, effective use of intelligence and proactive engagement with patients, the public, staff and local partners.  All this and more is explained in the document, which also sets out the key responsibilities of health service leaders.

The guidance is evidence-based and more than 1,000 people have contributed to its development, including board members, NHS staff, the Appointments Commission, the NHS Confederation and Monitor.”
