Associate Director of Corporate Governance
It is a condition of employment that those holding director and director-equivalent posts are required to provide confirmation in writing, on appointment and thereafter on an annual basis, of their fitness to hold such posts.
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) defines the intention of this regulation as being “to ensure that people who have director level responsibility for the quality and safety of care, and for meeting the fundamental standards, are fit and proper to carry out this important role”.
The Trust has defined ‘director-equivalent posts’ as those individuals who attend the Board of Directors meetings in an advisory capacity and therefore contribute to decision making. As such the Associate Director of Corporate Governance is one of these posts.
The Fit & Proper Person requirements are identified in a number of ways, including (but not exclusively) by the Trust’s provider licence, the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2008 (“the Regulated Activities Regulations”) and the Trust’s Constitution.
