Public and staff governors are elected for a term of three years to serve on the Council of Governors, representing the interests of Foundation Trust members within their respective constituencies and raising any concerns or ideas with the board. The term of office for new governors will begin on the 3rd September 2011.
The Council of Governors, comprising 37 publicly elected and appointed members, holds the hospital’s board of directors to account for their performance and plays a key role in forming the Trust’s strategy.
Within the next three year term, the Trust will be transforming its relationships in the healthcare community as primary care trusts are dissolved and GP consortia take over most of the local healthcare budgets.
If you want to be part of this by becoming a governor you don’t need any special experience; just enthusiasm, time and a genuine interest in the work of the trust. However you must be a member of the Foundation Trust, aged 16 or over and live within the constituency you represent, or be a patient or carer living outside the catchment area.
