NHS corporate governance map
Updated February 2021
15 February 2021
The HFMA NHS corporate governance map has been updated. The map brings together the key guidance and models to support effective corporate governance within the NHS. This update provides a number of links to new items from national bodies including the NHS white paper, working together to improve health and care for all and the new Government functional standard for counter fraud.
Robust governance policies and procedures must be in place, and regularly evaluated, to ensure they remain fit for purpose. Aimed at NHS boards, governing bodies, audit committees and those NHS staff with an interest in governance, the purpose of the NHS corporate governance map is to highlight the published resources that support the development and maintenance of effective governance arrangements.
The map is split into four sections: strategic framework; enabling good governance; specific areas for assurance; and devolved nations. It signposts the key model documents and guidance available, and when they were last updated.
The map will next be updated in Autumn 2021.
