Want to be a Governor at your local hospital?

Four public governor posts are being recruited to at North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust, which runs Peterborough City, Hinchingbrooke and Stamford Hospitals.

 

The Trust, which was formed on 1 April 2017, following the merger of Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust with Hinchingbrooke Health Care NHS Trust, is looking for new governors in all three of its constituency areas - Greater Peterborough, Huntingdonshire and Stamford/South Lincolnshire.

Individuals who are keen to play an important part in how their local hospitals are run are being asked to put themselves forward for election to one of the four positions open on the Trust’s Council of Governors. The elections will be run in June.

Rob Hughes, Chairman of North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We want to tap into the power of local voices to help shape our Trust as it enters its second year of operation. I am confident that there will be no shortage of local people who want to play their part in influencing how their local hospital serves its community.”

Six public information sessions are being held across our hospitals in May to provide assistance to anyone considering standing for election as a Trust public governor.

The sessions take place on:
