Lessons from Europe: provider governance

The NHS Confederation has published a briefing from a 'Lessons from Europe' seminar that examined the impact of recent reforms in hospital governance in Spain and the Netherlands.

The briefing identifies lessons for NHS managers and policymakers in England on how to approach the challenge of effective provider governance as the present NHS reforms are implemented.

Successive UK and European governments have believed that granting a hospital or healthcare provider the ability to make its own strategic or financial decisions will secure the quality, innovation and productivity required to improve healthcare delivery.
