The Board of Directors, provides governance through policy and strategic direction, and is made up of three members of the Family Health Organization (family physicians) and three community members. Either an additional physician or community member holds the Chair position alternately for a two-year term. In addition, a Clinical Advisory Group consisting of two physicians of the FHO and two Nurse Practitioners of the FHT provide advice on programs and services on a three-monthly basis. The Clinical Advisory Group also oversees quality initiatives and related programs aimed at providing patient-centred care at all times. The Executive Director represents the operational initiatives and interests of the WCFHT and attends all board meetings as secretary and non-voting member.
