The Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (ICSA) will launch, on 20 July 2011 in London, a report into NHS governance, benchmarking the gap between governance best practice and reality with a view to developing a better understanding of how and why good governance is often understood but not always implemented appropriately in practice. The research will highlight:
- organisations which have embedded good governance, especially where the right balance of scrutiny, challenge and respect has been achieved in the boardroom;
- the differences between the understanding of good governance from the perspectives of executive directors, non-executive directors and company secretaries; and
- the degree to which behavioural governance has been understood, accepted and promoted by NHS boards.
The ‘Mapping the Gap’ event will take place at Congress Centre, 28 Great Russell Street, London, WC1B 3LS (nearest tube station: Tottenham Court Road). The event will last from 9.00am-10.30am, with Registration from 8.30am.
This event is FREE and at the time of writing spaces were still available. To reserve your place at this event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org before 11 July 2011.
