These partner organisations are formally engaged in establishing and supporting the Centre’s strategy, priorities and work programme through two key bodies: the Management Board and the Executive Management Team. More information on each of these is provided below.

In addition to this formal partnership and governance structure, we work collaboratively with a wide range of stakeholders and partners from a range of organisations, sectors and communities. 

Management Board 

The Management Board consists of representatives from each partner organisation, the Deputy Director of the Health Improvement Strategy Division at the Scottish Government.and the GCPH Director and Associate Director.It is chaired by the Chair of NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde 

The Management Board meets four times a year and is the Centre’s formal governance structure, responsible for setting the Centre’s strategy and agreeing strategic plans for its range of activities. Individually and collectively, Board members are responsibile for ensuring that their host organisations contribute to the success of the Centre and that the Centre’s work is appropriately embedded within their organisation.      

Executive Management Team 

The Executive Management Team consists of a representative from each partner organisation and the GCPH Director and Associate Director. The Executive Management Team meet every six weeks, to consider emerging findings and their implications, new developments and any operational issues requiring partner involvement. 

External Advisory Group 

The Centre also has an External Advisory Group comprising a number of recognised and established experts from across the UK, reflecting a range of perspectives. The External Advisory Group meet once or twice a year to review the Centre’s activities and provide feedback to the Board about the quality of the work and its impact. Advice is also provided about national and international developments and opportunities of relevance to the Centre’s role.
