Interested in being a Governor?
All members can stand for election to represent the area they live in. We have divided the areas into ‘constituencies’ based on your postcode, similar to what happens in a local council election.

The role of the Council of Governors
We want our Council of Governors to have a real and substantial role, creating relationships between us and the community we serve.
Our governors play a very important role in the Trust. They act as a link between Foundation Trust members, the public and the Board of Directors.
A governor is both an advisor and a guardian:
- by representing the views of members and the public when decisions are made
- by holding the Board of Directors and Non Executive Directors to account for the performance of the trust.
