GovernWell: Member and public engagement module, Bristol
Date: 12 February 2020
Governors have an important role in making an NHS foundation trust publicly accountable for the services it provides, and it is the duty of the council of governors to represent the interests of NHS foundation trust members and the public. This training explores what this representation means, and reflects on ways to build effective relationships in order to present the public’s views to the board. You will also have a chance to share good practice with your peers and reflect on how you can support engagement activities within your trust.
What will governors gain?
- clarity on the governor and board duties in this area as laid out in the Health & Social Care Act 2012
- an understanding the reasons behind why trusts have members and need to engage
- a chance to explore examples of good practice
- an understanding of the challenges to member/patient engagement
- a knowledge on the importance of good relationships and what you as governors can do to support engagement activities.
