TUH Board Corporate Governance Manual - February 2022
The corporate governance manual provides members of the TUH Hospital Board with the information they need about corporate governance to perform their duties to the highest standards of accountability, integrity and propriety. It sets out the systems and procedures by which the Hospital Board directs and controls its functions and manages its business. You can read the manual through this link.

It is the responsibility of the Tallaght University Hospital (TUH) Board to determine the Hospital’s risk appetite that it is willing to undertake in achieving its strategic objectives. The Board of TUH undertook a Risk Appetite Review in early 2022 and the Risk Appetite Statement sets out the risk tolerance for TUH.
