Governor elections

Governor elections 2024

Voting opens for our current general election and by-election period between 21 August and 16 September 2024 for contested seats.

Following the nomination stage, vacancies still remain on the Council of Governors for a number of Public, Service User and Carer seats. We welcome our LPFT members to come forward who are interested in standing in our next election and to contact our Governor and Membership Services for more information.

Who are the Council of Governors?

The role of the Council of Governors is to ensure that the views of:

  • local people
  • service users
  • carers
  • staff

are heard at the highest level within the Trust. 

Every year, the Trust hosts its elections for all outgoing Governor roles, as well as any vacant positions.

The timeline for these can be as follows, with those successfully elected taking post for three years:

  • Public Governors  - 2027
  • Service User and Carers - 2025
  • Staff Governors - 2026
