RCN Legal and Governance Review: Council Review

At its meeting on 29 September 2015 RCN Council agreed seven key questions about issues that have emerged from the current review of RCN Council.

The review of Council is the final phase of a wider review of the RCN’s legal and governance structure which began in 2009.

The purpose of the review is to ensure that we have a fit for purpose legal and governance framework that enables us to fulfil our Royal Charter objectives and work as effectively as possible.

The brief for the Council Review is to look at how RCN Council and the Council Committees work with the other parts of the governance and representative structure; the Chief Executive & General Secretary and other senior staff. 

The objective was to assess the effectiveness of Council and the Council Committees and use the results to improve the way they work and inform the creation of appropriate induction and development programmes.
