What is Board Development?

This development area is endorsed by the Scottish Government and NHS Chairs Group taking account of national reports on Board governance and effectiveness, evidence from literature  and personal accounts of newly appointed and established Non-Executive Board Members and Chairs.  

Key to this is the Scottish Government’s Blueprint for Good Governance and Audit Scotlands reports on the Role of Boards and NHS in Scotland report. Each of these outline areas of focus for Boards and opportunities for growth and development.
