"Governors play a key role as the voice of our members and local communities and bring valuable perspectives to our activities to effect real change, so don't miss the opportunity to make your vote count – vote today."

The role of a governor is vital in ensuring that the Trust delivers services that meet the needs of patients, carers, staff and local stakeholders, and that the views of local people are heard and fed back to the Board of Directors.
