The Board of Directors is responsible for the operational management of the hospital and, with the participation from the Council of Governors, sets the strategic direction of the Trust.
The Board of Directors is comprised of full-time Executive and part-time Non-Executive Directors who manage the Trust. Our Non-Executive Directors were appointed because of their business skills and experience and strong links with the local community, and our Executives were appointed because of their business focus and operational/management experience within and outside the health sector, as a result we consider our Board of Directors to be balanced, complete and appropriate.
Who is on the Board of Directors?
The Board is made up of executive and non-executive directors. Executive Directors work full-time for the Trust, whilst the Non-executive Directors are appointed by the Council of Governors and give at least three days a month by attending Board meetings and working on specific projects. Non-executive Directors are appointed for three years.
