About the Council of Governors

The Council of Governors ensures that the views of members, as well as those of the wider community, are represented appropriately and it has been re-constituted to reflect the wider communities served by the merged Trust.

The Council of Governors is not responsible for the day-to-day management of the Trust, this responsibility remains with The Board. However the Trust Board ensures the Council of Governors is fully engaged in determining the future plans of the Trust.

The Council comprises of 27 members who are either elected by our staff and public members, or selected to represent the views of the specialist fields in which they work.
