Governors have an important role in making an NHS foundation trust publicly accountable for the services it provides. This important group of volunteers give their valuable time to help shape NHS services and represent their membership among a whole host of other duties. They bring valuable perspectives and contributions to its activities. Importantly, as a governor you will hold non-executive directors to account for the performance of the board and represent the interests of NHS foundation trust members and the public.  The Five Year Forward View puts a major focus on involving communities and ensuring accountabilities to them. 

Our Council of Governors hold 4 public meetings each year , where they receive the latest performance reports and have a chance to question the Board
