Working together: advice for governors and directors
NHS Foundation Trusts are required to develop a membership of people reflecting the communities they serve. In turn, these members elect the majority of members of the Council of Governors. Their role is to hold the non-executive directors individually and collectively to account for the performance of the board and to represent the interests of the members of the trust as a whole and the interests of the public. How? This Board Assurance Prompt is aimed at both governors and board members to help them to deliver this difficult brief.
