How we make decisions
NHS Swindon is responsible for the strategic leadership, policy making and overall performance of the organization.
The Board is made up of both executive directors and non-executive directors, some of whom are health professionals. Non-executives are appointed by the Secretary of State for Health and bring both professional skills and local knowledge to board decision making.
The NHS Swindon Board meetings are normally held monthly and are always held in public. At the start of the meeting, there is a period allowed for individuals attending to make statements or ask questions.
