Non-Executive Directors

Our Non-Executive Directors ensure that the Board practice in the best interests of patients and the public. They are essentially critical friends, holding the Board to account by challenging its decisions and outcomes to that they are satisfied that as an organisation we have both financial and operational integrity.

They use their knowledge, skills and experience to help the Board formulate Trust strategies and actively support and promote a healthy organisational culture.

Non-Executive Directors regularly speak with patients and staff, listening to their views, ideas and concerns.
