The Board normally meets nine times a year and ad hoc as required. It devotes much of its time to overseeing Bupa's strategy and policy, the approval of business plans and significant capital expenditure, acquisitions and disposals and monitoring of performance.
The Board comprises two Executive Directors, the independent Non-Executive Chairman, and seven further independent Non-Executive Directors. All Directors are subject to election/re-election at each Annual General Meeting (AGM). All Non-Executive Directors are independent of management and free from any business or other relationship which could interfere with the exercise of their independent judgement.
Non-Executive Directors are appointed for an initial term of three years, normally with the possibility of a period of extension for one term. Non-Executive Directors are paid a fee for their services to the group which are periodically reviewed by the Board with the help of independent advisors. During their time in office, they are also entitled to private medical insurance cover for themselves and any spouse or dependent children and annual health assessment for themselves and their spouse. The Chairman is also entitled to car benefits. Non-Executive Directors are not entitled to participate in any bonus, long-term incentive plan or pension arrangement funded by the company.Learn more about our corporate governance at Bupa.
