The Welsh NHS Confederation has produced a ‘Board Development’ website with the title Getting governance right – a web-based guide to governance in Wales and how to do it well.
According to the Welsh NHS Confederation “With brand new, integrated NHS organisations with large budgets, huge workforces, and far-reaching remits, the principles of good governance are more important than ever before.
“This website brings together a wide selection of advice, practical help and guidance to help board members get to the grips with what is governance, and how to do it well.
“Each section aims to provide practical support in an easily digestible format, helping to arm board members with the knowledge and tools they need to ensure their organisations consistently provide safe, high quality patient care.”
The website “is designed to complement the NHS Wales Governance eManual, developed by the Welsh Assembly Government.”
The Welsh NHS Confederation also runs a Board Development Programme for chairs, chief executives and independent members of Local Health Boards in Wales. The programme is a series of events which provide training, identification of priority policy areas and a background to governance issues.
