David has kindly lent me the message this week as in similar way to last week's message which focused on the executive team, I thought it would be useful to provide an update on the roles and responsibilities of the Non-Executive Directors (NEDs) who sit on the ASPH NHS Foundation Trust Board.
As Chairman, my role is to ensure the Board as a whole is effective in its governance and decision making, with a focus on our strategy, assurance that we are being run safely, effectively and efficiently and setting the right culture in accordance with our 4Ps values. Another large part of my role is to represent the Trust externally, both across the local and regional health and care systems and also working with the local authorities and NHS representative bodies. I also chair the Council of Governors and through this, stay close to the views and experiences of both the Governors and Trust members. The other NEDs each bring different skills and interests to the table and these are reflected in the roles they have within our Governance structure.
