Our governors play a key role in representing the views of our patients, public and staff members, ensuring that our services meet the needs of local people.

We hold elections between April and June every year, where our members and staff can vote for who represents them on our council of governors.

Run for governor

We’d love to hear from people all of backgrounds and experiences, so the voice of our council of governors represents the diverse communities we serve.

You can stand as long as you’re a member, over 16 and live in the area you wish to represent.
