Notes for Editors

The NHS TDA brings together a number of functions previously carried out within the Department of Health, Strategic Health Authorities and by the Appointments Commission. It has the core objective of supporting NHS trusts and ensuring that services to patients are of the highest possible quality, including:

  • assurance of clinical quality, governance and risk in NHS trusts;
  • appointments to NHS trusts e.g. of chairs and non-executive members and trustees for NHS charities where the Secretary of State has a power to appoint
  • performance management of NHS trusts;
  • management of the FT pipeline.
