Board of Directors
The Board of Directors 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.
Whilst the Trust is managed by the Board of Directors, the Board is accountable to the Council of Governors.
Council of Governors
The Council of Governors is made up of 17 public governors elected by members of the Trust, and five staff governors, elected by hospital staff.
These are supported by representatives from seven partner organisations from across our community.
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.
- We are regulated by Monitor and also by the Care Quality Commission.
