Meet our Board


Our Board are responsible for determining the overall policies that affect the way we carry out our business. They set our strategic direction and approve our annual business plan and budget.

There are eight members:

  • A Chair appointed by the Privy Council
  • Three non-executive members; one appointed by the Scottish Ministers, one appointed by the Welsh Ministers and the third appointed by the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety in Northern Ireland
  • Three non-executive members appointed by the Privy Council
  • One executive member appointed by our Board itself.
  • An associate Board member appointed for two-years

Our Board have different skills and backgrounds. They are not health or care professionals because the legislation under which we were set up does not allow anyone who has been a member of a profession that is regulated to sit on our Board.

We welcome members of the public at our Board meetings and always invite questions. 


Would you like to join our Board

We are looking for an Associate Board Member. The role is designed to be a development opportunity with the view to ensuring that the successful candidate would be in a stronger position to apply for other public appointments by the end of this appointment. We are particularly keen to improve our Board’s diversity of thought and for this reason we would have a strong preference for candidates with no previous Board experience. The deadline for applying is 10 March and you can find out more about the role and how to apply here.

What our current Associate Board member, Amrat  Khorana, has to say about his experience:

"‘I have had a very positive experience as an Associate Board Member at the PSA. I have seen a measurable improvement in my confidence and ability to challenge discussions and provide diversity of views based on my professional experience in health and social care.
