Being an NHS board member means thriving under pressure……

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.
