The board has operational responsibility for running the trust. The people who sit on the board are ultimately responsible for our performance and the way we deliver mental health care and improve services.

The board’s responsibilities include setting the trust’s strategic direction, ensuring the quality of our clinical services and overseeing financial performance.

Non-executive directors are selected by the NHS Trust Development Authority (TDA) because of the skills and experience they can bring from ‘outside’ the organisation. The board is led by a non-executive chair.
