Abstract

Boards of directors play an increasingly fundamental role in British NHS trusts as well as other parts of the public sector. This study shows that their effectiveness is compromised by issues related to internal dynamics, processes, responsibility, overall functions and performance. The focus of governance, therefore, needs to shift from structural concerns to the multiple collective aspects of a board's behaviour.
