What is Corporate Governance?
Corporate governance is the formal framework that governs the way in which we operate, covering the conduct of our trust and regulation of the conduct of our members, employees and agents, in financial and other regulatory matters. In the NHS this is sometimes referred to as the Publications Scheme.
Why is it important?
The corporate governance framework is vital in public bodies. It lets the public know that our organisation is well-managed and ensures that the business we conduct is transparent.
We have certain information that we make available to the public. This covers areas such as who we are, our aims, our financial regulation, our organisational structures and our media information.
How can I find out all the information?
All the information is made available to whoever wishes to view it. Some is on our website, some is in our corporate governance manual, and some can be obtained by contacting our Trust Secretary, Julie Hill, at JHill2@tavi-port.nhs.uk.
Corporate Governance Manual
Much of the framework governing the way in we operate is contained in our Corporate Governance Manual. This includes our:
- Standing Orders
- Standing Financial Instructions
- Reservation of Powers
- Scheme of Delegation Committee
