Membership and appointment
Our Trust Board is made up of 14 members — our Chair, seven non-executive directors, five executive directors (including our Chief Executive) and an associate non-executive director.
Our Executive Committee consists of nine executive directors and directors, including the five executive directors on the Trust Board.
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.
