NHS England’s Chair and non-executive directors are subject to an annual objective setting and performance review process. Non-executive board members of NHS Improvement were also subject to this process, prior to NHS Improvement being abolished.

The Department’s Directors General or senior departmental sponsors of public bodies are responsible for agreeing objectives for and reviewing the contribution of Chairs including NHS England and this process is managed by Chairs for non-executive directors. In line with the Governance Code for Public Appointments, evidence of performance is shared with the Secretary of State.
