Our legal requirements
- This is our provider licence from Monitor
- Declaration of compliance with condition G6 of the provider licence
The licence, which is issued to foundation trusts, is a tool Monitor uses to regulate foundation trusts and other NHS-funded providers under the Health and Social Care Act 2012. It sets out the obligations providers will have to meet in order to assist Monitor to fulfil its principal duty to protect and promote the interests of patients.
The Independent Regulator, Monitor, has provided a standardised framework or constitution that sets out the way the organisation must operate. The trust constitution is modelled on mutals and cooperatives, with the broad parameters in legislation but the detail is defined locally. It was developed via consultation with the public,staff, partners and stakeholders.
