Our Trustees
Our Trustees are responsible for the overall control and strategic direction of Barts Charity. We also have Board Advisers, who are people with specialist experience who provide independent advice and recommendations to the Trustees.

They are all unpaid volunteers who give their time and expertise to help achieve our goal of extraordinary healthcare for all. They meet regularly throughout the year to discuss strategies and policies and to monitor activities, and to receive reports and updates from the management team.
