Joint Working Board (JWB) 

As part of the new governance arrangements between Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals Trust (BTUH), Mid Essex Hospitals Trust (MEHT) and Southend University Hospitals Trust (SUHT) a Joint Working Board (JWB) has been established. 

The JWB is made up of a committee of each of the three Trusts to which responsibilities have been delegated by each Trust Board. 

The JWB does not replace the three Trust Boards who remain ultimately accountable for the performance of each organisation. 

The JWB has been formed to provide an opportunity for members of each Trust Board to work together to undertake strategic planning and make decisions about the delivery of high quality care across all three Trusts. 

This is essential if we are to redesign services across Mid and South Essex. The JWB will become the focus for the majority of board-level decision making for the three Trusts, while remaining fully accountable to the Trust Boards.
