G) Who will run the NHS foundation trust?

Who will run the NHS foundation trust?

The board of directors run the day-to-day operations of the trust. In addition, a council of governors will be set up and will consist of elected members of the public, service users, carers, staff and appointed people from local organisations such as NHS clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), local councils and voluntary services.

The council of governors will represent the interests of the local community through our members. They will be involved in deciding the strategic direction and development of the trust. They are not involved in the day-to-day operational matters.
