Healthcare Governance Review editor Stuart Emslie has published the second of two articles in Health Management, the journal of the Institue of Healthcare Management.
The article – Tough at the top – acknowledges that veryone in healthcare is under pressure. Boards are under particular pressure because they are ultimately accountable for the success and safety of an organisation. They have a huge amount of responsibility and when things go wrong, the buck stops with them. This can have serious implications for boards and board members.
