Governors Elections 2022

Governor elections for 2022 have now closed, our thanks to everyone who stood for election and to members who voted.
A key role of the Council of Governors
To hold the non-Executive directors, both individually and collectively, to account for the performance of the Board of Directors and to represent patients and staff. No experience or skills necessary, training and support provided along with reasonable expenses. Governors must be able to commit to attend quarterly Council of Governor meetings with the opportunity to observe other key committees.
How can a governor make a difference?
Governors represent the voices of local residents, patients, communities and staff. It’s an important, valued and rewarding role within our local NHS. We want wider community representation from all genders, faiths, interests, ethnicities, ages (16+) and more. We need a very diverse governing body. Will you stand? Training and support will be provided. Life experience is more important than qualifications! You will develop new skills which might help you in other ways. Governor roles are voluntary (expenses paid).
