As a public benefit corporation, we are owned by our 6,500-strong membership of patients, public and staff, who are represented by the governors' council. Our public governors are elected by the membership.
- provide a direct link to our local community
- represent the interests of members and the wider public in the stewardship and development of the Trust
- advise the board of directors, who have the operational responsibility for running the hospital.
In this way the population served by our hospital is directly involved in the governance of the Trust.
Role of governors
Governors are very important to ensure a link between the members of the NHS Foundation Trust, the wider community and those who run the hospital.
Governors have a duty to represent the interests of the members of the Trust and the interests of the public as a whole.
Governors are responsible for holding the non-executive directors individually and collectively to account for the performance of the board of directors.
