NHS Trusts were established in the 1990s with governance frameworks modelled on private sector organizations. This included each Trust having a Board with overall responsibility for future direction, the boundaries within which the Trust operates, its values, and its results. This chapter discusses the role of NHS boards, effective Board communications, board papers, and common problems with communications to boards and their committees.
