About this event

Following his visit to the Board Leadership Programme in April 2012, Professor Edwards is returning to talk about the findings of the second Francis Inquiry report into Mid-Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust (expected in January 2013) and what it means for boards, patients, health care professionals and regulation.

Participants at Brian’s previous event found his authoritative knowledge of the Inquiry and open style helpful in terms of understanding the challenges facing boards.

Please invite your executive board members and clinical commissioning group colleagues to this event.
