Governance is all about how an organisation is directed, controlled and held to account.
Good governance ensures that effective structures, systems, policies and procedures are in place to ensure that the organisation is working for the benefit of all and to the highest standards.
In the case of our hospitals, the governance structures support the effective provision of healthcare services to the communities we serve. The systems in place to regulate this are set internally by the Trust and externally by regulatory bodies such as the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and Monitor who regulate all NHS Foundation Trusts. As a provider of NHS services, our Trust must comply with the standard conditions set out in its Monitor Licence which can be viewed here.

The Trust’s governance arrangements are set out in the constitution which describes the purpose and powers of the Trust and the roles and responsibilities of its Board of Directors and Council of Governors.
