The aim of the health service governance module is to equip the chartered secretary with the knowledge and key skills necessary to act as adviser to governing bodies across the NHS in England.
The advice of the chartered secretary includes all aspects of the governance obligations of NHS organisations in England, covering not only legal duties, but also applicable and recommended standards of best practice.
CSQS students can choose to take this module in place of the Corporate Governance module as part of CSQS level one. This module can also be taken as a stand-alone qualification, the ICSA Advanced Certificate in Health Service Governance.
