Home » About Us » Network Operational Board


The West Midlands Network Operational Board is chaired by the Network Clinical Director, Dr. James Heron and in his absence co- Chair, Network Director, Kate Burley. This group is accountable to the Network Executive Board.

This Board will:

  • provides a forum for interchange and linking between the Network SIG, and other asks that are brought to the Network.
  • makes recommendations to the Network Executive Board and support the implementation o these once approved.

The membership of both Boards will be reflective of the geography of the West Midlands.

This new governance structure will enable our Network to develop and provide clear lines of governance and accountability and ensure that there are clear channels of communication.
