As part of the new governance arrangements between Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals Trust, Mid Essex Hospitals Trust and Southend University Hospitals Trust, 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. 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.
The inaugural meeting in public of the Joint Working Board was held on Wednesday 1st February 2017 in Rooms B2/B3, Education Centre Basildon Hospital, Nethermayne, Basildon, Essex SS16 5NL
Meeting dates for 2018 are as follows:
