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.
