Health service boards and governance

Victorian health service boards are appointed by the Minister for Health and have well defined responsibilities. The Department of Health & Human Services provides a dedicated support program to develop board capability.

Board appointments are held annually for public hospitals.

Board education aims to develop and strengthen each director’s capabilities. There are many resources available to support boards and their members.
