Our Trust Board of Directors

Barnsley Hospital is managed by our Board of Directors. The Board is responsible for the operational management of the hospital and, with input from the Council of Governors, sets the direction for the future of the hospital.

It is also responsible for monitoring performance against national, regional and local objectives and ensuring the highest levels of standards and performance.

The Board is made up of both executive and non-executive directors.

The executive directors work in the Trust full time while the non-executive directors are appointed by the Council of Governors and commit as much time as they can to the Trust by attending Board meetings and working on specific project groups that interest them offering their expertise in a specific field.

The non-executive directors are in post for a term of up to three years. Further appointments may be made by the Council of Governors.
