Board of Directors

A board is accountable to the Minister for Health for the service’s performance. Each health service board steers its entity on behalf of the minister and in accordance with government policy.

Board members do not participate in the day-to-day management of the health service. This is the role of the chief executive officer (CEO) and staff. Health service boards:

  • govern health services
  • develop strategies
  • oversee financial and service performance
  • respond and adapt to challenges such as population and changing demographics
  • meet regulatory and government policy requirements and standards.

If you would like to provide any feedback to the Corryong Health Board, please do so by writing to [email protected]. We welcome your feedback.
