Our Governors

Elected Governors

More than half of the Board of Governors are members of the public (including patients, carers and volunteers). The aim is to give local people a real say in the way in which the Trust is run. There are also a number of Governors appointed by the Trust’s stakeholder partners.

Any Member aged 18 and over is eligible to stand as a Governor representing their constituency. Governors are elected for a maximum term of three years; they can be re-elected but no Governor would serve for longer than nine years in total.
