Trust Board

Membership and appointment

Our Trust Board is made up of 18 members — eight non-executive directors, nine executive directors (including our chief executive) and an associate non-executive director.

Our Executive Committee consists of the executive directors on the Trust Board and five non-executive directors.

The chief executive and the other executive directors are appointed through a process of open advertising and formal selection interview. Non-executive directors are appointed by the same method but through NHS Improvement. All executive appointments are permanent and subject to normal terms and conditions of employment.

Meetings and Board Papers

The first part of the meeting is open to everyone. If you want to attend a meeting, please contact the Committee Secretary for an agenda and papers and to discuss any special requirements:

If you have a question for one of the board members you should send it to the Trust Secretary at least 48 hours before the meeting.
