NHSCC launch checklist to support CCGs with induction and training of lay members

Checklist_inductionToday we have launched a new checklist to support CCGs with induction and training of lay members.

The new checklist is the second in a series we are producing in relation to the lay member role. It follows on from the checklist we published in June to support CCGs with lay member recruitment and succession planning.

The checklist looks at:

  • induction
  • mentoring and buddying
  • networking
  • ongoing and further training.

It also provides a list of organisations that can assist further with training and induction.

Susanne HasselmannSusanne Hasselmann, chair of NHSCC’s Lay Members Network said: “CCG lay members provide independent challenge to their organisation’s board and ensure that robust governance arrangements are in place. Although lay members are highly skilled in their own field and should have senior management or board level experience for exercising their role effectively they still require a comprehensive induction and training programme. This checklist aims to support CCGs in this task.”

Download the checklist.

A further checklist around professional development for lay members will be launched later this year.
