Consultants call for strategic RCN shake-up

The Royal College of Nursing has released the independent report from management consultants KPMG (member only access). These were completed as part of RCN Council’s review of the governance of the College.

The report calls for “significant change” and makes 25 recommendations across four broad themes: strategy, member leadership and Council, governance structures and supporting mechanisms.

It calls for a clear and multi-year strategy to be developed, and the RCN is today announcing its intention to set a 2023-2028 strategy by this autumn following a process of member engagement. 

The report calls for a clear articulation of member involvement in decision-making and the principles for co-production and co-creation between RCN members and staff. 

KPMG’s recommendations include calls for greater definition to be given to senior member and staff roles and the ways in which they operate. 

Last month, RCN Council approved a programme of work to look at roles, responsibilities and accountabilities and a review of the terms of reference for all governance committees has already commenced. 

Separate work to improve the governance of RCN forums will be considered by Council this month.

The Carr review report is due to be published in late summer and once received, the RCN is committed to refreshing its Respect Charter as called for by KPMG. 

The RCN’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Sunday 5 June will include an update from the Chair of the Governance Support Committee, Council member Geoff Earl, on the KPMG report and wider review, as well as a progress update from Bruce Carr QC.
