Council of Governors elections 2021

We are delighted to be able to share the results from the elections we held this summer for our Council of Governors.  

The role of the Council of Governors is to make sure that the views of local people, service users, carers and staff are heard at the highest level within the Trust.

Governors take part in a number of activities throughout the year, which enable the Trust to monitor and ensure the quality of our services is of the very highest standard.

We would like to extend our thanks to all members who took the opportunity to vote. This year the result brought a mix of new and familiar faces to the council.
