The Board sets the overall policy and strategic direction for the Trust, approves and monitors University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH)’s business plans, budgets and major capital expenditure, and monitors performance against objectives. The board delegates authority to a number of sub-committees for specific areas of work. These include the remuneration and nominations committee, audit committee, research and innovation committee, quality and safety committee, workforce committee, finance investment and performance committee and commercial and private healthcare strategy committee.
