Our Board

The role of the Trust board is mostly supervisory and strategic, ensuring that the Trust has high standards in clinical care, financial stewardship as well as responding to the health needs of the population it serves.

Our Trust Board has a Chairman and a combination of Non-Executive and Executive Directors. The Non-Executive Directors give an independent voice to the Board and provide a high level of scrutiny to all aspects of the Trust. They bring to the Board a wide range of professional and business experience
