Course overview

NHS Providers in partnership with NHS England delivers an essential induction programme specifically designed for new non-executive directors (NEDs) of NHS trusts and foundation trusts. 

This is specifically for new NEDs who are less than 6-9 months in post.  

This two day induction aims to prepare new NEDs for their roles in the sector. It has been developed to provide a deeper understanding of their board role as part of a unitary board along with an essential overview of the current NHS environment in which the role is set. The aim is to ensure all NEDs gain a core understanding of the fundamentals of their role and the NHS context. 

Please note this is a two day event and delegates are expected to attend both days. This induction is being delivered virtually via zoom. 

Who should attend?

"I attended this programme myself as a new NED just over two years ago and cannot commend it highly enough. Has formed a key part for me in how I conduct the role and I urge any new NEDs to take part".

Non-executive director    Northamptonshire Healthcare Foundation Trust

"Thank you for making it such a valuable two days, after many years as a NED in different organisations I still learned things and was impressed by my colleagues who are clearly going to be excellent NED’s in their organisations. The networking was a highlight, and I will be meeting up with a couple of colleagues to continue our development and learning."
