Trust board

The Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust board takes collective responsibility for setting the strategic direction for the trust which includes Barnet Hospital, Chase Farm Hospital and the Royal Free Hospital. The board oversees our commitment to providing the best NHS services and patient experience through world class expertise and local care.

The full-time executive directors and part-time non-executive directors that make up the trust board are responsible for the daily running of the trust and its achievements against hospital performance and governance targets.

The board is also accountable for upholding the trust’s probity and its clinical quality indicators which are designed to ensure we achieve quality improvement, as well as better patient safety and outcomes.

The trust's board is held to account by the non-executive directors, who in turn are held to account by the council of governors. The council of governors are elected by members from the public and staff communities we serve.
