Governor elections

Our 24 Governors represent the interests of the members and the general public, and they hold the Non-Executive Directors to account for the performance of the Board.

Have you got what it takes to be a Governor?

Being a Governor can be very rewarding and interesting. Governors play a vital role in shaping the future direction of the Trust and the services provided to local communities.  Governors represent the interests of the Trust’s membership (which includes staff, patients and local residents) and the wider public.  Becoming a Governor is a good way to build your knowledge about what is going on in the Trust and the wider NHS.
