Vice Chair – 1st July
The three key roles through which the board of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board demonstrates leadership within its organisation are:-
- Formulating strategy.
- Ensuring accountability by holding the organisation to account for the delivery of the strategy and through seeking assurance that systems of control are robust and reliable
- Shaping a positive culture for the Board and the organisation.
The role of the Board member focuses on four key areas:-
- Strategy – to contribute to strategic development and decision-making
- Performance – to ensure that effective management arrangement and an effective team are in place at the top level of the organisation. To help clarify which decisions are reserved for the Board and then ensure that the rest are clearly delegated and to hold management to account for its performance in meeting agreed goals and objectives through purposeful challenge and scrutiny, and to monitor the reporting of performance
- Risk – to ensure that financial information is accurate and that financial controls and systems of risk management and assurance are robust and defensible
- Behaviour – to live up to the highest ethical standards of integrity and probity and comply fully with the Code of Conduct. Board members should demonstrate through their behaviour that they are focusing on their responsibilities to citizens, the organisations and its stakeholders
