We hold elections every year for our Council of Governors. If you're a member, you can vote for governors to represent you and your local area.

We've counted the votes for our 2019 public governor elections. Click here to see the results.

We are currently holding staff governor elections in the following staff groups:

  • Registered health and social care professionals
  • Registered nurses
  • Corporate and support

Click here to see the notice of poll.

We also asked for nominations from our staff who work in the medical or unregistered nurses, health and social care professionals categories. We won't be holding nominations in these groups however, as we only received one nomination in each category.

Click here to see the statement of nominations - this document includes information about our staff who were nominated in the two categories which we're not holding an election for. 

We've received nominations and voting is now open until 31st October. You will have been sent a ballot pack to your NHS email so you can vote for a representative. Please contact ftmembership.penninecare@nhs.net if you've not received one or for more info.
