Trust Board

Trust Board

 Will and Vijay sat in a Trust Board meeting.

Our Trust Board have overall corporate responsibility for the running of EMAS. The main role of the Trust Board is to guide the overall strategic direction of the organisation, including planning for our current challenges and future priorities – ensuring that we can set and meet our objectives.  

Our Trust Board is led by a Chairman and comprises of Executive Directors and Non-Executive Directors.

Non-Executive Directors have roles and responsibilities outside EMAS. This allows them to bring an alternative viewpoint and draw upon external experience when discussing and agreeing upon the direction of our Trust – bringing an important balance to the Board.

Public Board Meetings

Our Trust Board meets every two months. The meetings are held in public with a commitment to ensuring that decision making is transparent and open. There will, however, be occasions when, due to the nature of the issue to be discussed, the Board is required to meet in private.

You are invited to attend any of our public board meetings. We want to ensure appropriate social distancing following the COVID-19 pandemic, so we therefore ask that you contact us in advance if you wish to attend one of our Board meetings. This will also allow us to ensure that we are able to make appropriate arrangements to accommodate any specific accessibility or communication needs that you may have. Please contact the Governance Team by email governance@emas.nhs.uk or by telephoning 07581 249 830 to book a place at a meeting.  

The meeting papers will be available on the Trust’s website at least three working days prior to each meeting. Meeting papers will not be available at the meeting unless requested in advance.
