We understand the noble Lady may be referring to the programme board of the NHS Leadership Academy. The NHS Leadership Academy programme board is made up of the Chief Executives and Managing Directors of its key national stakeholder bodies as well as representatives from a range of other organisations that include National Health Service providers and commissioners. The representatives that currently sit on the programme board were nominated by their respective organisations.

In relation to Public Health England's Advisory Board, we appointed four Non-Executive Members in April 2013. They each bring to this role a great range of experience.

We will shortly advertise for further candidates to enhance the expertise available to Public Health England.

We aim to ensure that, as far as possible, the Advisory Board provides an appropriate gender balance and representation from ethnic minority and disability backgrounds.
