We need to talk about boards: boards, leadership and the NHS

We need to talk about boards of directors. Debate about the future shape of the NHS shows that we need more discussion and understanding of the role and powers of the boards of directors of NHS provider organisations, and in particular how well functioning boards directly support their staff and improve services for patients. Our starting point is that NHS provider organisations already have significant potential to adapt and transform and that board-led organisations are more likely to be better led through times of change than other organisations. The purpose of this report is to
help create a shared understanding of the role and potential of boards in the NHS.
