Council of Governors

The involvement of our governors helps to shape the services we provide and reflects the needs and priorities of our patients, staff and local communities.

They meet quarterly in public and, at these meetings, provide feedback, acting as the eyes and ears of local people, when formal decisions are about to be made by the Trust Board.
