How the Trust is run

Sussex Partnership was established as an NHS Foundation Trust with teaching status in August 2008. It is part of the NHS and is regulated by Monitor, the independent regulator of NHS Foundation Trusts.
Sussex Partnership is accountable through a Board of Directors, responsible for setting the strategic aims and objectives of the Trust and for monitoring performance, and a Council of Governors, which provides the link between the directors and local communities and holds the Board to account. Non Executive Directors monitor what happens at the Trust, making sure we perform at a high level and contributing to our development.
Our Constitution was launched on 1 August 2008. The Constitution is a formal document describing the purpose of the Trust and how it is governed.
It includes descriptions of the duties of the Directors and Governors, the membership categories and criteria and the composition of the Board, Council and its sub-committees.
