ARC Executive 

ARC South London is governed by an Executive, which is chaired by ARC director Professor Sir Graham Thornicroft and meets monthly. The Executive includes representatives from our research and cross-cutting themes, and each of the collaborating organisations. Read more about the Executive.  

ARC Board

The Executive is accountable to the ARC South London Board, which is co-chaired by Dr Adrian McLachlan, Chair of Lambeth Clinical Commissioning Group and Professor Julia Wendon, Executive Medical Director at King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

The Board includes representatives from each collaborating organisation, Health Education England, local public health leads, and patient and service user representatives. The Board meets four times a year. Read more about the Board

The Board is accountable to the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) via King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust Board. Each year, the ARC submits a detailed report outlining its activities and progress to the NIHR. 

PPIE Strategic Oversight Group

Another part of the ARC’s governance is the Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement Strategic Oversight Group (PPIE SOG), which includes patients, service users and members of the public drawn from across the ARC. The group oversees the involvement of patients and service users in the ARC’s activities, and makes recommendations to the Executive. It meets three times a year.
