Executive Directors

The role of executive directors

Executive Directors take the lead in developing strategic proposals, drawing on professional and clinical experience. They lead on the implementation of strategy within functional areas and manage performance within their area.

Executive Directors will also actively support and promote a positive culture for the organisation and reflect this in their own behaviour and nurture good leadership at all levels. They will take principle responsibility for providing accurate, timely and clear information to the board and lead on engagement with specific internal or external stakeholder groups.

The role of non-executive directors

Non-executive directors bring independency, external perspectives, skills and challenge to strategy development. They hold the executive team to account for the delivery of strategy and offer purposeful, constructive scrutiny and challenges. They also act as chairs and participants of key committees that support accountability.

Non-executive directors actively support and promote a healthy culture for the organisation and reflect this in their own behaviour and provide visible leadership in developing a healthy culture so that staff believe they provide a safe point of access to the board for raising concerns. They also satisfy themselves of the integrity of financial and quality intelligence including getting out and about, observing and talking to patients and staff. They ensure the board acts in the best interests of patients and the public.
