Governor election

This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone interested in the future of local mental health services to become involved. The Council of Governors are consulted on any plans for changes to the way local health mental services are delivered and are responsible for appointing the Trust Chair, Chief Executive and Non-Executive Directors. Governors are accountable to the members who elect them and form a vital link to the communities that the Trust serves including service users and carers.

The successful candidate will join the Council of Governors at meeting on Thursday, January 15, 2015 and will play an important part in the life of the Trust. If you are interested in the role, you are invited to stand for election and request a nomination.
