How our trust is led

The trust board ensures that we meet our strategic objectives. We are managed by a board of directors comprising a chair, executive directors and non-executive directors. The board of directors are responsible for the day-to-day management of the hospital and oversight of our people.

The board of directors is made up of the following:

  • Executive directors, who are responsible for managing areas of the trust’s business.
  • Non-executive directors, who have specialist experience and bring independent oversight of the board’s activities.

The trust board has several committees that monitor the operational and financial performance of the organisation, as well as matters relating to the quality and safety of our services.

Board meetings

The trust board meets in public every other month and you are welcome to attend the meeting. Please let Heather Schultz, head of corporate affairs, know if you would like to attend and if you wish to submit a question to the board. You may ask pre-submitted questions at the board meeting, but you will not be able to contribute to the discussion.

An Annual General Meeting (AGM) is held on a yearly basis and is open to members of the public.

Inpatient comment:

Everyone offered words of such reassurance and kindness. I felt so cared for and the communication with me at all times was fantastic.
