How we work


Our structure

Our NHS organisation is a Foundation Trust.  As a Foundation Trust, decisions are made by our Board of Directors and overseen by our Council of Governors.

The Board of Directors that runs our Trust has responsibility for what we do.  Our Board has two types of directors:

  • Our executive directors have responsibility for the day-to-day running of the Trust. Some executive directors can vote at the Board and some cannot.
  • Our non-executive directors provide an independent check on how well the Trust runs.

Some ESNEFT staff and members of the public are part of our Council of Governors. The Council share their views of our services with the Board.

You can sign up as a public member to get the latest updates and opportunities to be more involved.

Board of Directors

The Trust Board meets regularly to discuss the running of the Trust and to make decisions. You can attend these meetings. Information about the dates, times and agendas for upcoming meetings, and notes of past meetings, can be found on our Board Meetings page (Opens in a new window).

You can learn about each member of our Board on our Executive Directors (Opens in a new window) and Non-Executive Directors (Opens in a new window) pages.
