How we are run
The management of the Trust is led by a Board of Directors, this is made up of the Chair, five other Non-Executive Directors and Executive Directors including the Chief Executive. Through the unitary board they are responsible for the day-to-day running of the organisation and are accountable for ensuring high standards of clinical and corporate governance, monitoring of performance and ensuring effective financial stewardship through value for money principles.
The Board provides leadership, to set the organisation's strategic aims, and to identify and maintain its values. All members are committed to the Seven Nolan Principles of Public Life and have met the Fit and Proper Person Test to be a member of an NHS organisation Board.
They meet monthly and hold at least ten meetings in public session. Stakeholders, partners and members of the public are all welcome to attend and you can find a list of upcoming dates below.
