Trust Board

Our Trust Board sets the Trust's strategic aims, ensures that the necessary finance and personnel are in place to deliver these aims, and reviews management performance.

The Trust Board meets in public and anyone can attend. The meetings alternate between both hospitals.

Should any members of staff and/or the public require any further details about our Board meetings, please contact Mrs Jacky Stockdale, Company Secretary, on 01228 814010 or 

Please note that Trust Board meetings are held in public, and are not public meetings. 
Members of the public are invited to ask the Trust Board any questions they may have at the end of the meeting, however questions must be related to items on the agenda. If you would like to submit your question in advance, please contact

Nolan principles

Our Trust Board fully adopts the principles contained in the Nolan Principles of Public Life:

Holders of public office should act solely in terms of the public interest. They should not do so in order to gain financial or other material benefits for themselves, their family, or their friends.

Holders of public office should not place themselves under any financial or other obligation to outside individuals or organisations that might seek to influence them in the performance of their official duties.

In carrying out public business, including making public appointments, awarding contracts, or recommending individuals for rewards and benefits, holders of public office should make choices on merit.

Holders of public office are accountable for their decisions and actions to the public and must submit themselves to whatever scrutiny is appropriate to their office.

Holders of public office should be as open as possible about all the decisions and actions that they take. They should give reasons for their decisions and restrict information only when the wider public interest clearly demands.

Holders of public office have a duty to declare any private interests relating to their public duties and to take steps to resolve any conflicts arising in a way that protects the public interest.

Holders of public office should promote and support these principles by leadership and example.
