Governor elections for 2017 closed on 16 October 2017

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 next round of governor elections are now open but nominations have closed.
You can see the Statement of Candidates below.
