The NHS arguably has one overarching purpose, to provide comprehensive, high quality and universal health care services to the people of the UK. Boards are fundamental to achieving this purpose.
Within this, the value of good governance should not be underestimated. Indeed, we know all too well from high-profile incidents, that when governance fails it can quickly lead to patient safety issues.
This is why it is so important that those organisations that provide healthcare have robust quality assurance and improvement mechanisms. These, when implemented effectively, inform and support frontline staff to deliver high-quality and sustainable care, and managers to make more intelligent and effective decisions
How do we make sure that systems and mindsets are in the right place to provide that assurance? Perfect Ward has been working with GGI to look at key questions post-covid – this event is the launch of a white paper outlining their findings.
Good Governance Institute is an internationally respected consultancy that focuses on improving performance via ethical culture, effective control and legitimacy. As a part of their 'Festival of Governance', they are exploring the theme of 'flip-the script' this year. It’s a theme that resonates strongly in this extraordinary year, as our friends in the NHS and local authorities are tasked with revolutionising how public services are integrated and structured.
Together with them, we will be launching a white paper containing the maturity matrix to support boards in their development to excellent quality governance.
The team at Perfect Ward look forward to seeing you at the event
