Model rules, e-voting and engagement sessions get delegates’ votes!
The introduction of the New Model rules in 2014 gave NHS Foundation Trusts the opportunity to incorporate e-voting in to their Council of Governor Elections. In response to this UK Engage, the UK’s most innovative and engaging elections services provider, ran a number of seminars to address this subject.
With e-voting being used more and more in modern democracy, UK Engage wanted to explore this topic as part of a wider subject, focussing on practical issues that will affect the future of how NHS Governor Elections are administered.
The last seminar was hosted in London in January 2015. It saw delegates from some of the leading NHS Foundation and aspirant Trusts participate in idea generation of how Trusts can adapt in preparation for the future.
The seminars were split into five sessions and feedback collated provided the following facts: –
- Key sessions of interest were the New Model Rules, followed by e-voting
- 100% of delegates found the NHS seminar interesting and relevant
- The session that received the most requests for more information was our social media session
- 100% of delegates would recommend the seminar to other Trusts
Tony Slater, Head of Elections at UK Engage said of the event “We wanted to provide an NHS seminar that addressed the challenges that Trusts are facing today and are still likely to face in the future. Recognising that Trusts are more financially challenged than ever before, we wanted to deliver a seminar that dealt with innovative ways to get the most out of budgets through online engagement and voting options in combination with traditional election processes.”
