Join us on Wednesday, March 18 2015 to find out how you can become a Non-Executive Director

“Unlike many courses I have attended in the past, How to become a Non-Executive Director went beyond just the technical aspects of being a ‘Non-Exec’, and reflected on the differences in the approach required compared to being an Exec Director.
It allows you to make a fully informed decision on whether a Non Exec role is right for you, and if it is, how to go about finding opportunities.
An invaluable day of learning!”

Alastair Lewis Director at Smaointe Ltd

The How to become a Non-Executive Director course helps you to plan and prepare for your first NED position. It instils a real sense of what is expected of NEDs, and how you can meet the challenge.

This one-day interactive course is aimed at aspiring NEDs and covers essential knowledge about roles, responsibilities, strategy and corporate governance that are key foundations for a Non-Executive board role. It also considers up to date thinking on corporate governance and the responsibilities of owners, the board and employees.

This is followed by practical sessions on identifying NED opportunities, the process of obtaining a first appointment and performing due diligence before any position is accepted. There is emphasis on the importance of presenting your experiences with clarity and relevance.

This course identifies the various ways and circumstances in which non-executive directors can make an effective contribution to a board’s work. It also examines methods for their selection and reviews their motivation, induction and reward.
Are you thinking of becoming a Non-Executive Director as part of a Portfolio Career or to develop your boardroom skills prior to taking up an executive director role?

Possibly because my father is an ardent twitcher and probably because of seeing geese so regularly whilst out and about I have always been fascinated by why so many birds fly in a V formation.A V formation (sometimes called a skein) is the symmetric V-shaped flight formation of flights of geese and from the research that has been carried out and published in journals such as Nature we can learn a lot that can be transferred into business and life...

For those keen to put their best, low-carbon foot forward in the New Year, CSH will be running two workshops on sustainable healthcare.  Participation is free for those working within the Oxford Academic Health Science Network area (Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Milton Keynes).

The theme of the second workshop, running on Wednesday 4th February 2015, is 'measuring carbon in healthcare'. This workshop will examine why measuring carbon impacts in healthcare is important and provide an overview of how it can be done. Participants will be supported to identify the data that could be used to calculate a carbon footprint of clinical activity within their setting and directed to tools and other sources of support.

We welcome those delivering treatment and care, patient representatives, researchers, health educators and those from the health industry.

The workshop will take place at the George Pickering Education Centre, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford between 09.30 and 1pm and include an organic lunch. To learn more or register for these sessions contact Rebecca at: rebecca.gibbs@sustainablehealthcare.org.uk. 

If you and your colleagues are not based in Oxford and would like either an introduction session to sustainable healthcare or a carbon workshop based in your area, please contact CSH.

Hello there! This Christmas could you pledge a tree to support the NHS Forest project? Maybe you work in the NHS or have a loved one who has been helped by this wonderful organisation. Perhaps you like the idea of helping people to enjoy a 'natural health service'. Or maybe you've seen the amazing achievements of our NHS Forest sites and would like to support our work. 

This would make a great present for friends and family and it's also a great alternative to sending out Christmas cards. If you pledge above a certain amount, you are free to download an e-Christmas card to forward to your family and friends from our website. It's another way to enjoy a greener Christmas!            

The NHS Forest is a programme of the Centre for Sustainable Healthcare, a charity that engages healthcare professionals and the public on the links between health and the environment and gets them out into the great outdoors. We are always looking for ideas that will get people better quicker. So we set up the NHS Forest project seven years ago to bring nature into the healing mix of what the NHS offers. In recent years there has been a growing body of evidence on the benefits of green space on health and wellbeing and how even just a view of a tree from a window can reduce a patient's recovery time. 

We offer sponsored trees to NHS sites as we find tree-planting projects are a great way to engage NHS staff, patients, visitors and the local community. Over 36,000 trees have been planted on more than 150 sites that vary widely from open woodland to urban jungles and include all kinds of healthcare facilities such as mental health units, GP surgeries, large teaching hospitals and ambulance stations.  

It has also helped to kick-start other therapeutic projects in the green spaces that surround many NHS healthcare sites. We have linked with inspirational staff, patients, visitors and third sector organisations who have developed community gardens, therapeutic gardens, orchards, allotments, woodland walks and outdoor classrooms for local communities to access and enjoy. We highlight and share all the amazing things they do on our website, in our monthly newsletter and at our annual conference where we hand out NHS Forest Awards for the most innovative ideas, best community project and most inspirational project by a healthcare professional.

To find out more about what we do and why, view our video above and then visit our website: www.nhsforest.org

Please pledge your support today to help us grow more forests for health. Thank you!
To support and facilitate more use of green space at NHS sites for the health and wellbeing of staff, patients and local communities. http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/nhs-forest/

The first workshop, running on Wednesday 7th January 2015, is an 'introduction to sustainable healthcare'. Attendees to this session will be given an introduction to the principles of sustainable healthcare and examples of the value this approach can bring to healthcare management and improvement. Time will be spent examining the relationship between climate change and health and the ways in which actions to promote health can bring environmental benefits.

We welcome those delivering treatment and care, patient representatives, researchers, health educators and those from the health industry.

The workshop will take place at the George Pickering Education Centre, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford between 09.30 and 1pm and include an organic lunch. To learn more or register for these sessions contact Rebecca at: rebecca.gibbs@sustainablehealthcare.org.uk.
