Our Governing Body is clinically-led, including seven GPs, a registered nurse and a secondary care clinician, all of whom have day-to-day knowledge of the health problems that residents face.
The Governing Body’s role is to ensure that we have appropriate arrangements in place to exercise our functions effectively, efficiently and economically, and in accordance with the generally accepted principles of good governance, the NHS Constitution and our own local Constitution.
The Governing Body meets in formal public sessions six times a year. It is provided with accurate, timely and clear information so it can maintain full and effective control over strategic, financial, operational, compliance and governance issues.
Our Governing Body is supported by a number of committees and sub-committees who meet on a regular basis throughout the year to review, assess, and regulate the activities and responsibilities of the organisation. The details of these committees and the membership of each one can be found within the Meetings and Papers section.
