Our governors

Our Council of Governors, led by our Chair, is made up of elected members of the public, staff and representatives from partner organisations.

Governors are responsible for ensuring the views of our diverse local communities and members are considered in decisions about how we develop our services. They meet four times a year.

Our members

One of the guiding principles of being a foundation trust is that we are accountable to local people.  To help with this, we invite people from the community to become members of Pennine Care. It’s free and open to anyone over the age of 16 years.

Being a member gives people the chance to influence how we develop health services locally, as well as decisions about our future direction.

We currently have 21,000 members, made up of local people, patients, carers and our staff.
