Governor elections

Could you make a difference to your local NHS? Help shape the future of the Trust and become a governor

One of the most exciting parts of being a Foundation Trust is being accountable to our staff, service users, carers and public members instead of to the Department of Health.

Through a Council of Governors that represents our members and partner organisations, we have an opportunity to encourage greater staff, service users, carers and public involvement in shaping the future of the Trust.

Our governor elections for 2017 are now closed.

You can see the results of our election below.
