Our Trust Board

Find out about the role of our Trust Board and read our Trust Board member profiles.

Our Trust Board has overall responsibility for the day-to-day running of our Trust and the services we provide. 

The directors who sit on our Trust Board are responsible for overseeing operations and strategic decision making at the Trust, making sure we deliver on our promises and act professionally at all times.

There are 13 highly experienced people on our Trust Board - six executive directors, including our Chief Executive and seven non-executive directors, including our Chairman.

We hold our Trust Board meetings on a monthly basis. Part one of the meeting is held in public, meaning anyone can attend to observe or ask a question during the public forum section of the meeting. View our Trust Board meeting dates and papers.
