Our governors

Our Council of Governors acts as a link between service users, carers, staff, the general public and the trust Board of Directors.

They support the Board of Directors in setting the long-term vision for our organisation and hold the non-executive directors to account for the actions of the Board. Our Board of Directors has a duty to consult and listen to the views of the Council of Governors.

Our 38 Governors are elected to represent membership constituencies:

  • Public
  • Service user/carer
  • Staff
  • Appointed

Find out who our Governors are on our profile pages.

Information on how to become a Governor and stand for election to the Council of Governors is available here.

Our annual Governor’s review includes information about the role of our Governors and their activities over the preceeding year.
