Governance surveys are all the rage currently in the NHS and the latest survey has, this month, been launched by the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (ICSA).
The ICSA study is “designed to identify those examples of organisations that have embedded good governance, especially where the right balance of scrutiny, challenge and respect has been achieved in the boardroom. The study will also look at the differences between what is required from prominent figures, such as executive directors, non-executive directors and company secretaries, in order to achieve good governance, and the degree to which behavioural governance has been understood, accepted and promoted by NHS boards.
In order to complete its research, ICSA has produced an online survey to examine the respondents’ knowledge of recent NHS governance documents. The survey can be found here.
In addition ICSA seeks NHS boards and other stakeholders who would be willing to participate in interviews and/or board observation exercises to identify and highlight current best practice.
