The Board is headed up by a Non-Executive Chairman, appointed by the Board of Governors. It includes five Non-Executive Directors and six Executive Directors. The Non-Executive Directors are appointed, again by the Board of Governors, on the basis of their wide experience in the community and the insights they bring from other professional areas.
The Executive Directors are all experienced health professionals. In addition to the Board of Directors meetings there is a Management Board chaired by the Chief Executive comprising Executive Directors, Divisional Directors, Divisional Medical Directors, Clinical Directors and the Chairman of the Medical Staff Committee. It meets monthly to deal with the bulk of the day to day business, reporting formally to the Board of Directors.
