Staff member talks with a patient
The vacancy is in the North Hampshire constituency, which covers Basingstoke, Fleet, Alton, Bordon and Petersfield.
Our Governors provide a vital link between local communities and the Trust Board, representing views and asking questions on behalf of local people, supporting patients and service users, and helping share Trust developments, as well as holding Non-Executive Directors to account.
Our existing Governors have played a strong role in recent years; sitting in on interview panels for new Board members, being involved in programmes of work that directly affect frontline services, and attending public events promoting the work of the Trust.
We are looking for people who are over 18, live in the North Hampshire area, and are interested in the NHS and representing the views of people in their local area.
You will need to commit to serving a three year term, and attend four Council of Governors meetings a year, as well as any others you choose to get involved in.
In order to stand as a candidate, you do need to be a member of the Trust. If you are not already a member, you can register in a few minutes via this link.
The election is open for candidates to nominate themselves, and you have until 5pm on Tuesday 18 September. After nominations there may be a vote, after which the successful candidates will be announced at the end of October. You can find out more by:
