We hold elections in our public and staff constituencies on a rolling basis every few years and our members are notified when elections are to be held.

Governors strength lies in working together as a Council with the Trust to make things better for our people and our patients. Read on for how to vote or stand in our local elections.

 

Upcoming elections

We have elections in the following constituencies for our upcoming 2022 Governor elections which will open on the 6th September 2021. We have started the election process earlier this year to allow time for shared learning between existing and newly appointed Governors. This also provides time for newly appointed Governors to observe the December Council meeting and Board meetings and some Council committee meetings before starting their term of office in March 2022. An induction, initial training and other learning opportunities will be provided.
