- Executive and non-voting directors who are all full time members of staff and have responsibility for a specific area of the Trust’s business.
- Non-executive directors who bring their external experience and an independent eye to decision making and management.
The Board is fully committed to providing the highest standards of care and experience for King's patients and staff. It closely monitors the Trust's performance to ensure that internal and external objectives and targets are met.
