    A quarter of Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) non-executive directors of NHS trusts have seen or experienced discrimination in the course of their work, a report reveals. While almost four out of five (79%) of these BAME non-executives said they challenged such behaviour when they encountered it, only half (50%) said that led to a change of policy or behaviour. The other half felt they had been ‘fobbed off’ or subjected to actively hostile behaviour for having spoken up,” says a report commissioned by the Seacole Group, which represents most of the BAME non-executive board mem

    Key points Corporate governance is the means by which boards lead and direct their organisations so that decision-making is effective, risk is managed and the right outcomes are delivered. In the NHS this means delivering safe, effective services in a caring and compassionate environment while collaborating through system and place-based partnerships and provider collaboratives to integrate care. Best practice is detailed in the following sections: Board leadership and purpose, Division of responsibilities, Composition, succession and evaluation, Audit, risk, and internal co

    The UK medicines watchdog has been urged to strengthen its conflict of interest policy after it emerged that six of its board members are receiving payments from the pharmaceutical industry. Board members involved in overseeing the regulator’s “strategic direction” also have financial interests in companies including US and Saudi drug giants and firms with ambitions to break into the UK’s healthcare market. Some offer consultancy services while others help run or own shares in drug and medical device firms, according to official transparency records. There is no suggestion of wrongdo

    A trust board has backed the medical director who oversaw the dismissal of a whistleblower in a case linked to patient deaths. Portsmouth Hospitals University Trust told HSJ John Knighton had the full support of the organisation when asked if he faced any censure over the wrongful dismissal of a consultant who raised the alarm about a surgical technique. Jasna Macanovic last month won her employment tribunal against the trust with the judge calling its conduct “very one-sided, reflecting a determination to remove [her] as the source of the problem”. The judgment found that the d

    Within hours of the catastrophic Fern Hollow bridge collapse in Pittsburgh, USA, the National Transportation Safety Board was on the scene, finding answers to “Why?” and “How can we keep this from ever happening again?” What could be more obvious than the value of having a team of experts on the alert — and empowered with the authority — to provide promising solutions to dangerous situations? Transportation industries embraced the recommendations because they know what its corporate mission and obligation to the public is: to get people from place to place as efficiently and safely as pos

    An NHS England review into the behaviour of high-profile senior leaders who took over a Midlands trust has concluded that the interim CEO “behaved poorly and inappropriately” while its chair was “complicit with” and failed to address problems. NHS England had commissioned an independent probe into allegations about the behaviour of new executives, who had recently been appointed to the board of Walsall Healthcare Trust. David Loughton and Professor Steve Field, who hold the same roles at the Royal Wolverhampton Trust, were brought in as interim chief executive and chair respectively

    This document sets out the guiding principles that will allow NHS board members to understand the: Collective role of the board including effective governance in relation to the wider health and social care system. Activities and approaches that are most likely to improve board effectiveness in governing well. Contribution expected of them as individual board members.

    The report makes five recommendations: Create an induction offer for named Health Inequality leads, including role guides and examples of actions to be taken. Use national and local action learning sets, which are already in place in some areas, for named Health Inequality leads. Create a repository of high-quality evidence, knowledge resources, methods and regularly updated case studies that reflect the progress that’s being made. Commit to a long-term policy focus and a cross-government strategy that places addressing inequalities at the heart of system development.

    It's #SpeakUpMonth in the #NHS so why isn't the National Guardian Office using the word whistleblowing? After all it was the Francis Review into whistleblowing that led to the recommendation for Speak Up Guardians. I believe that if we don't talk about it openly and use the word 'WHISTLEBLOWING' we will be unable to learn and change. Whistleblowing isn’t a problem to be solved or managed, it’s an opportunity to learn and improve. So many genuine healthcare whistleblowers seem to be excluded from contributing to the debate, and yes not all those who claim to be whistleblowers are

    The matrix describes the key elements of quality assurance along the y-axis, and graduations of ‘maturity’ along the x-axis. For each of the key elements, we have identified indicative statements so that organisations can self-assess their level of ‘maturity'. The rate of progress is incremental and the organisation cannot progress to the next level of maturity unless all criteria from the previous box have been fulfilled and, importantly, can be evidenced. The matrix should be used to illustrate the current performance and to inform and agree on future developmental expectations. Fo

    Way back in March I applied to re-join the NHS to help with COVID-19. I am a mental health nurse prescriber with an unblemished clinical record. I have had an unusual career which includes working in senior management before returning to clinical work in 2002. I have also helped deliver several projects that achieved nation recognition, including one that was highly commented by NICE in 2015, and one that was presented at the NICE Annual Conference in 2018. Several examples of my work can be found on the NICE Shared Learning resource pages. Since applying as an NHS returner. I ha
