The Charity’s trustees are appointed by the Health and Social Care Appointments Committee of the
NHS Trust Development Authority using powers delegated by the Secretary of State for Health.
Trustees are recruited by public advertisement and all candidates are subject to selection and
interview prior to appointment.
They meet each quarter to review the Charity’s affairs, to review the management of the properties, investment portfolio and other funds, to agree the allocation of grant funding within the objectives and to consider and approve plans for fundraising and income generation. Decisions of the Trustees are informed by professional advisers in relation to the property, investments and research grants awarded.
