About the NHSTA
All Officers of the NHSTA give their time to the Association on a voluntary basis.
The NHSTA held its inaugural meeting in April 2000 in Westminster.  (At that time it was known as the Association of Primary Care Groups and Trusts.  Following the switch-over from "Groups" to "Trusts" status, the name was changed from Association of Primary Care Groups and Trusts to the NHS Trusts Association.) The meeting was attended by the press and addressed by a senior representative of the Department of Health.
All 481 Primary Care Groups and Trusts were invited to attend the meeting.  At the meeting, the delegates unanimously approved the following:
The Constitution.
The method of funding (via a services contract, with the Association's publishers).  The delegates unanimously approved Scorpio Publishing Ltd.
That the Association should be funded without cost to the National Health Service.
The Chief Executive, Dr , OBE, MBChB(Ed), FRCGP, DipCrim(Lon), was appointed, following his nomination from the floor.  His appointment was approved by unanimous vote of the delegates.
The first Chairman, Dr Ravi , was elected.
The Secretary, Mr David , MRSM, MBPS, MMJA, was appointed, following nomination from the floor by unanimous vote of the delegates.

The NHSTA is not a part of the Department of Health or the NHS, it is an independent association of NHS Trusts and accordingly any views expressed by the NHSTA do not represent the views of the Department of Health, the NHS or any other organisation.
