Governors make a difference

Over the next few weeks, the Trust will be inviting Members of the Non-Clinical Support Staff group, Medical and Dental, Trade Union and Staff Organisations and volunteers who are registered as a Trust Member (staff automatically become a Trust Member unless they opt out) to stand as a Governor in our upcoming Council of Governor elections.

We will also be inviting the Trust’s public Members who live in Crewe and South Cheshire, Northwich and Region and Cheshire Borders constituencies to apply (details will be sent to those eligible). 

What is a Governor?

43. Main Entrance - external shot.jpgGenerally, Governors are those people who are interested in and care about improving their local health services for the good of the whole community.

They play an essential role in our Trust, providing a link between our members, our community and our Board.  Although there are statutory duties that our Governors perform, most importantly, they listen and represent their communities.  They help us to learn and develop as a Trust.

Like to find out more?

If you are interested in becoming a Governor and would like to find out more about the role of the Council,  we warmly invite you to our ‘Meet the Governor’ Events during the month of January. This is open to all members who would like to find out about Governors and their roles within the Trust.
