NHS Providers in partnership with NHS Improvement delivers an essential induction programme specifically designed for new non-executive directors (NEDs) of NHS trusts and foundation trusts.
This two day programme 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.
Please note this is a two day event and delegates are expected to attend both days.
