Governors have a key role in representing the interests and views of our members, the general public and in supporting our Trust’s performance.
What do Governors do?
- Help us to promote membership opportunities and the role of Governor
- Develop networks for engaging members and the wider community, including minority groups
- Seek the views of members and the wider public when developing our future plans and prioritise and share these with our Board of Directors
- Seek assurance from our Board of Directors around the Trust’s performance and convey key performance assurance information to members and the wider public
We have vacancies within the public constituency.
You do not need specific qualifications for the Governor role; only a commitment to representing members and the wider public to the best of your ability.
We provide an induction programme for newly elected Governors and an ongoing training programme is provided for all governors.
If you are interested in becoming a Governor at our hospitals, we recommend that you book a place on one of our two virtual workshops.
These are on Thursday the 21st January 2021 at 10am – 11am and 5pm – 6pm.
You will have the chance to learn more about the governor role and meet some of our existing Governors.
To book your place on a workshop, or for further information, please contact Catherine Arrand-Green on 0800 073 0663 (free phone) and leave your contact details (name and telephone number). Alternatively, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
