Saving lives, Improving lives

Committees in Common

From 1 April 2017, the Trust Boards of both Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust and Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust delegated their functions to a Group “Committees in Common”.

While the two Trusts currently remain two statutory bodies, the Group Committees in Common (CiC) effectively manages both Trusts under the Northern Care Alliance NHS Group.

The CiC comprises our Chairman and six Non- Executive Directors, along with six Executive Directors who are responsible for Group executive leadership roles - Chief Executive, Chief Medical Officer, Chief Nursing Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Chief of People, Chief Delivery Officer, Chief of Strategy and Chief Improvement Officer.
