Enable East operates as part of North Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust (NEPFT). Our governance arrangements ensure that we are able to operate autonomously ensuring that;

  • we manage our work and our resources within the expected parameters for a NHS organisation
  • we do not operate against the wider interests of the Trust
  • information about the work that we deliver for customers is not shared with the Trust beyond the Enable East team

There is a small management board for Enable East that meets bi-monthly comprising;

  • Chair - Peter Little, Non-Executive Director - NEPFT
  • Rick Tazzini, Executive Director of Resources - NEPFT
  • Susannah Howard, Director - Enable East
  • Gary Peverley, Associate Director of Business and Finance - Enable East

The annual business plan for Enable East is approved by the Trust Board and reviewed mid-year.

Chair - Peter Little, Non-Executive Director, NEPFT
