Board Development Programme

The NHS Providers Board Development Programme is open to all NHS trusts and foundation trusts. The training programme, developed by NHS Providers, aims to provide support for trusts on common problem areas identified by regulators in relation to the revised Well Led framework. Currently the four areas of focus are:

  • Working with the system to deliver transformation
  • Developing an effective and compassionate unitary board
  • Developing a culture of continuous improvement to support high quality sustainable services
  • Governance frameworks for recovering and maintaining performance

These events aim to draw on the experience and good practice developed by 'good' and 'outstanding' trusts, as well as linking in with stakeholders such as NHS Improvement and the CQC, to provide an insight into the regulator's perspective. Both NHS Provider members and non-members can access this support.

Alongside this, NHS Providers deliver paid for events on key topics including effective chairing, effective recording of board and committee meetings and effective report writing. Training is also offered in bespoke format delivering tailored support to meet the needs of your individual trust.

We also run a NED Mentoring Programme, offering support in establishing mentoring relationships.
