Effective recording of board and committee meetings
Date 21 March 2018
All assessments including evaluations start with a review of minutes of the board and the numerous sub committees that shape the governance framework for the organisation. It is at this point that initial impressions are formed and ineffective minute recording can have unintended consequences leading to inaccurate and potentially damaging conclusions about the trust. Much has been done to improve effective challenge within boards and committees but assessors do not always appear to reflect this in their assessments. Inadequate recording of discussions has been identified as one of the issues and often leads to frustration amongst those attending the meeting. To address this we have designed a workshop aimed at helping those who record minutes for the board and key committees.
The workshop, which is suitable for NHS Trusts and NHS Foundation Trusts, is a mix of presentations on good practice, an overview of what regulators want to see particularly in relation to quality committees and some hands on practical exercises in minute taking. The cost of this workshop is £190 (ex VAT) per person.
“Good confidence builder”
"I would recommend that everyone who takes minutes goes on the course, even those who have been doing it for some time, as it allows time and space to examine what you do and how you do it and to look at things that can be done differently. There is something for everyone to learn and contribute. Thank you for a very interesting and valuable day"
“Very helpful and interactive course with methods to take away and apply to my own working environment"
