Governors and Members

Being a member of an NHS Foundation Trust means that you can have a real say, through your elected representatives (Governors), in shaping future services and strategic planning.

You decide how involved you want to be – you may simply want to receive a newsletter about the Trust’s activities or you may want to stand for election to the Council of Governors, which works with the Board of Directors.

We are committed to establishing a truly representative membership and welcome members from all backgrounds and protected characteristics including age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, and sexual orientation (this is not exclusive of other diverse backgrounds).
