Inaugural Meeting of Quality Committee NED Members’ Forum

360 Assurance has been running a Quality Assurance Forum for senior management representatives from NHS provider trusts across the East Midlands and South Yorkshire for over 2 years. The forum has been an enormous success and has led to 360 Assurance winning the 2012 HFMA Governance Award and The Benchmarking Institute & The Best Practice Club 2013 Benchmarking Excellence Award.

Building on this success we have established a forum specifically aimed at the Non-Executive Directors who sit on NHS Trust Quality Committees (Board Sub-Committees) within the East Midlands and South Yorkshire.

The inaugural meeting of the Quality Committee NED Members’ Forum was held on March 11th 2014, at Trent Vineyard Conference Centre, Nottingham. Sir Stephen Moss talked to the Forum about his experiences at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust between 2009 and 2012 and what can be learnt about quality assurance systems and processes. Good discussions occurred amongst attendees regarding the quality priorities for 2014-15 and the key risks on the horizon for Quality Committee members to be cognisant of. This was an excellent opportunity for networking and sharing ideas and good practice.
