The Board's governance role is to provide governance and to ensure that CMDHB fulfils its statutory functions in the use of public resources. The current Board governance structure includes three statutory committees and five non-statutory committees (including Advisory Groups) which assist the Board to meet it's responsibilities. The committees include minutes/agendas of Board members, clinicians and community representatives.
Whilst the Board maintains overall responsibility for the DHB's performance, operational and management matters are assigned to the Chief Executive.
