NHS Non-Executive Director Programme

Following the success of our last two programmes specifically designed to meet the needs of Non-Executive Directors in the NHS, we are pleased  to launch the next round of events. We have had circa 200 NED attendances across the programme so far. We have listened to their feedback to shape and develop the next round which will run from June until February next year .We continue to draw on the best minds within the healthcare sector as well as using the expertise we have developed from our work with key clients across the NHS. 

"Excellent course, informative, up to date and extremely useful. It also provides confidence to NEDs to challenge their Boards effectively."

"Relevant, succinct and stimulating - thanks."

NEDs have a key role in inputting to the strategic development of their organisations and to ensure they are exercising their responsibilities in relation to governance and risk. With the financial pressures on the system continuing, and the need to find system-wide solutions paramount, there is a real role for NEDs to play in driving real and lasting transformation. Our programme aims to support NEDs in their role both through providing expert knowledge but also giving an opportunity to share experiences and ideas with peers - we know this element was particularly valuable to NEDs who attended our previous events.

Is cyber security the biggest risk to healthcare?

Date: 30 June 2017

In the wake of the recent ransomware attacks, the topic of cyber security has propelled itself to the board agenda, with the key question ‘how secure are we from future cyber attacks?’ This session with PwC healthcare cyber experts will guide you through the top level issues and what you, as a NED, should be asking of the Board.

Developing business industrial strategy and life sciences – how this can help the NHS

Date: 3 July 2017

The worlds in which the NHS and the Pharmaceutical and Life Sciences industry operate are highly inter-connected.

Both sectors share the desire to improve outcomes and to ensure patients can manage and overcome their diseases, and prevent or proactively manage ill health. Cost constraints for the NHS and cost inflation for life sciences can sometimes set the two sectors in opposition.

There are great examples where work currently aligns and, if enhanced, will mean rewards and benefits for both sectors as well as the patients they seek to serve.

International perspectives on quality improvement and the productivity challenge – making accountable care work

Date: 18 September 2017

We can learn much from how health population management and accountable care has been developed and implemented, particularly in the United States where state health boards appoint organisations to run their Medicaid health and care plans. There is much knowledge for England to harvest and use from the way those organisations deliver care and disease management, utilisation review, integrated discharge planning and referral management at scale.

Healthy boards, talent and diversity – the key to high performing systems

Date: 30 October 2017

There is lots of evidence that points to the fact that diversity of leadership is a feature of successful organisations. In a diverse and changing world, it is essential to bring the best talent to our boards and senior leadership roles; and this talent we know exists across race, gender, disability or social background. Many benefits can be gained from having a well-balanced board which represents the diverse nature of its workforce, its customers and the patients it serves, supported by a talent strategy that is also aligned to a diversity and inclusion agenda.

The future of inspection

Date: 24 November 2017

In 2016 the CQC introduced their revised system of inspection as a new approach to inspecting organisations and independent sovereign NHS bodies. Yet almost in parallel the NHS has been moving to the establishment of collaborative provider alliances and fledgling accountable care systems. New organisational forms with a shared purpose but with the herculean task of trying to bring together physical, mental and social care from secondary, community and primary care backgrounds into the same place and service.

STPS, devolution and local government taking a lead - how joint working is operating post the five year forward view

Date: 8 December 2017

Place based working has become the order of the day. It can avoid silo working and in theory at least, helps the public purse to be spent in a wiser way and can create more local support for change. But as many NHS leaders find when trying to implement the policy, it also runs counter to the way in which the current NHS architecture operates through organisations and institutional regulation. So into this mix, there is an opportunity to establish and draw on a new relationship with local authorities, whose raison d’etre is centred on ‘the place’.

Delivering system wide sustainability – managing risk in healthcare transformation

Date: 22 February 2018

Transformation is firmly on the agenda for leadership teams with the development of STPs providing a focus for system reform. Delivering transformational change across multiple organisations, with multiple stakeholders is not without its challenges or risks. It is vital that these challenges and risks are managed so that the benefits of transformation can be truly delivered.
