Board of Directors
The Board of Directors is responsible for the operational management of the hospital and, with input from the Governing Council, 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.
Whilst the Trust is managed by the Board of Directors, the Board is accountable to the Governing Council.
Council of Governors
The Council of Governors is made up of 20 public governors elected by members of the Trust, and six staff governors, elected by hospital staff.
These are supported by representatives from nine partner organisations, which include Barnsley Council, Barnsley College, the Joint Trade Unions committee, Voluntary Action Barnsley and NHS Barnsley.
Members of the Hospital
Our members provide an important local voice and have a say in how the hospital is run. Members are mainly local people, but can include anyone from the whole of England and Wales.
Often, staff who go on to work in other hospitals or NHS organisations remain members. As do some patients who come to be treated from outside the area. Being a member means being kept up to date with developments and also being able to have a say about how the hospital is run. At the moment there are around 12,400 members of Barnsley NHS Foundation Trust.
