Committees of the Board

From July 2017 the Board’s revised committee structure has been implemented. Board committees seek confidence that the systems of internal control which the Trust has established are designed well and are operating effectively. 

We do this because when this is the case, we can have more confidence that we shall achieve the Trust’s corporate objectives.

Audit Committee

The purpose of the committee is to acquire and scrutinise assurances that the Trust’s system of internal controls relating to Financial systems; the information used by the Trust; assurance framework systems; performance and risk management systems as well as compliance with law, guidance and codes of conduct are designed appropriately and operating effectively. 

 

Quality and Patient Committee

The purpose of the committee is to acquire and scrutinise assurances that the Trust’s system of internal controls relating to quality governance (encompassing patient safety, clinical effectiveness and patient experience) are designed appropriately and operating effectively. 

 

Finance and Investment Committee

The purpose of the committee is to acquire and scrutinise assurances that the Trust’s system of internal controls relating to finance, corporate services and investments in future operational capability, are designed appropriately and operating effectively. 

 

Workforce and Wellbeing Committee

The purpose of the committee is to acquire and scrutinise assurances that the Trust’s system of internal controls relating to the workforce (encompassing resourcing, staff wellbeing and HR processes) are designed appropriately and operating effectively. 

 

Appointments and Remuneration Committee

The purpose of the Committee is to make decisions relating to Executive Director and very Senior Manager recruitment, appointments, remuneration and other terms and conditions. The Committee membership is exclusively Independent Non-Executive Directors.

 

Nominations Committee

The purpose of the Committee is to make recommendations to the Council of Governors in relation to appointments, re-appointments, remuneration and appraisal of the Trust’s Independent Non-Executive Directors, including the Chair of the Board and of the Council. The Committee membership must have a majority of Governors.

 

The Trust also has a Charitable Funds Committee which oversees the administration of our charitable funds.
