The Council is made up of 24 people; 13 publicly elected governors, four staff-elected governors and seven governors appointed from organisations SECAmb works closely with.

The Council is part of the governance of the Trust. The Council appoints the Chair and Non-Executive Directors, as well as the Trust’s external auditor. In addition, the Council is kept informed about the Trust’s plans and the structure is designed to provide patients and the public with assurance that the Trust is putting the patient at the heart of all we do.
