UK: NHS England consults on revised Code of Governance for NHS provider trusts

NHS England has published for consultation an updated edition of its Code of Governance for NHS provider trusts: see here.

The Code, as with the UK Corporate Governance Code, contains principles and provisions and operates on the basis of 'comply or explain'.
