Information for governors and members of the public observing the meeting of the Board of Directors

This virtual meeting of the Trust Board is being held in public via MS Teams. A recording of the meeting will be made available on the hospital website a day or so after the meeting.

Some rules of etiquette regarding the meeting:

  • Members of the public will be on ‘mute’ during the meeting.
  • The Board welcomes questions from members of the public at the end of the agenda. When invited to ask questions, please use the ‘raise a hand’ function to indicate that you would like to ask a question and wait to be invited by the Chairman to speak.
  • Please keep your question brief so as to allow others an opportunity to speak in the limited time available.
  • Direct your question to the Chairman rather than individual directors.
  • The Chairman reserves the right not to respond to questions which relate to matters that are the subject of current confidential discussions, commercial negotiations or legal action, or for any other reason at their discretion.

Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is managed by a Trust Board, made up of the Chairman, the Chief Executive, seven full-time Executive Directors and eight part-time Non-Executive directors.  The role of  the Trust Board is to:

  • set the overall strategic direction of the Trust
  • provide effective financial control
  • ensure high standards of corporate governance
  • ensure that the Trust provides high quality, effective patient-centred care.

Trust Board meetings are held every other month in the Education Centre at the hospital on Galsworthy Road, Kingston upon Thames.
