The Board of Directors, Executive, Managers, and Staff at Northeast Health form part of a united team who all play an important role in the provision of healthcare services to our community.
The Board of Directors consists of members with a broad skill base, and accountable to the Minister for Health for the performance of our health service.
New Board members are appointed by the Governor-in-Council following a rigorous application and selection process. It is important that the Board of Directors has a wide range of skills to effectively provide leadership of Northeast Health, and we are very fortunate to have such a mix in place covering clinical, corporate, financial and legal experience.
