Information for Potential Governors

We believe that Governors are the interface between our members, patients, public, staff and the Board of Directors, who have operational responsibility for running our services. Our Governors give a valuable outside perspective on projects and performance, are responsible for holding the Non-Executive Directors to account for the performance of the Board, and for ensuring that staff views are represented.

Each Governor is a member of the Foundation Trust and is elected by their fellow members.

Our Council of Governors meet four times a year. Individual Governors are involved in Trust committees and working groups, and input into specific projects where their particular expertise or perspective is valuable. Any member can put themselves forward to be elected as a Governor, with no specific qualifications other than having a passion to get involved.
