  1. Oversee and guide the future development of the UK Healthy Universities Network.
  2. Develop and implement an annual work plan.
  3. Liaise with government departments and other relevant bodies within the various UK administrations.
  4. Develop robust reporting and communication mechanisms between the Steering Group and Network membership.
