Our Board of Directors is led by the Chairman of the Trust and is made up of Executive and Non-Executive Directors.
Working together, the Board of Directors are collectively responsible for the exercise of the powers and the performance of this NHS Foundation Trust. In so doing, the Board members bear full legal liability for the operational and financial performance of the Trust.
Members of the public are welcome to attend our Board of Directors’ meetings and can view the Board agendas and minutes below.
