Become a Governor

What does being a governor involve?

Our Council of Governors allows members to become more involved in the work of the Trust. They represent the views of Trust members and the public, and have a say in the future delivery and development of services at the Trust.

Being a governor gives a real sense of achievement through helping the Trust to improve and is a great opportunity for personal and professional development.

Role of the Council of Governors

The Council of Governors is accountable to the members of the Trust through the public, staff and partner governors. We consult and involve the council in the planning and strategic direction of the organisation.  The council meets formally on four occasions during the year and annually at its Annual Members and Annual General Meeting.


Standing for election

Any member of Nottinghamshire Healthcare who is over 16 years old and meets the eligibility criteria can stand to be a governor. There are no specific qualifications or skills required and no experience of board level responsibility is necessary. You just need to be willing to be involved and represent the people in your area. Governors will be appointed for a specific period of office.
