Members’ Council elections

You can now make a nomination to stand for election to our members’ council.

We’re looking for enthusiastic Trust members with a passion for healthcare to stand for election. Governors are really important to our Trust. They contribute their views and ideas for our future plans and priorities as well as holding our Board to account for the performance of the Trust.

Take a look at the notice of election, including the seats available.

Closing date: 5pm on Friday 2 March 2018.

The benefits of becoming a governor:

Becoming a governor gives you more of a chance to get involved with our Trust. You can represent your community and be the connection between local people and our organisation.

You’ll get to have your say and shape the plans and future of the Trust by taking part in surveys, meetings and events.

You can learn and develop new skills, access free training, and receive regular news and updates.

Most of all, you can help to make a difference to local healthcare.
