The Board of (Non-Executive) Directors are experienced chartered physiotherapists and advanced AACP members with vast acupuncture knowledge. Non-clinical directors are sought from outside sources whom possess the relevany skills and experience required to support our fellow board members. Directors receive an emolument of £300 per Board Meeting in recognition of the time taken from their everyday jobs.
The Board is supported by a Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Accountant/Auditors (Azets, Peterborough). The accountant and auditor are paid for work done at current commercial rates.
A governance policy ensures that board members are bound by a Code of Conduct that specifically requires them to declare if they have a personal interest in any matter under discussion by the board.
