Do NHS boards adhere to good corporate governance?

Leith Central Community Council

(adapted from a press-release from the Scottish Parliament)

The Scottish Parliament’s Health and Sport Committee is undertaking an inquiry into the effectiveness of corporate governance in NHS Boards. This is the third and final stage of its wider inquiry into NHS Governance which has also been looking at staff and clinical governance.

In this next stage, the Committee will assess if NHS boards follow the key principles of good corporate governance it will draw upon Audit Scotland’s ‘Role of Boards Report’ and the Scottish Government’s ‘On Board’ Guidance. The Committee will look at the structures and processes for decision making, accountability, control and behaviour at senior levels of NHS Scotland.
