Board of Directors and meetings

We are a public organisation and as such we are accountable to the people we serve.

Our Board of Directors is made up of a Chair, a Chief Executive, Non-Executive Directors, and Executive Directors.

Their role is to:

  • agree and set the strategic direction of the Trust
  • regularly monitor our performance against national standards
  • ensure we provide the best possible services which offer the people of Nottinghamshire best value for money
  • actively ensure we communicate with the people we serve
