Hospital Governors to meet next week

Governors at Norfolk’s largest NHS Foundation Trust be holding their regular quarterly meeting next week to discuss services at both Cromer Hospital and the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

The Council of Governors meeting takes place at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital from 10am – 1pm on Tuesday 23rd June 2009.   The Governors will be reviewing future strategy, looking at how members of the Foundation Trust are recruited and involved and there will also be a regular update on how the Trust is performing.  

All NHS Foundation Trusts have a Council of Governors which represents the views of patients, public and staff.    As space is limited, members of the public interested in attending the meeting should contact the Membership Office on 01603 287634 or e-mail membership@nnuh.nhs.uk

The Council of Governors was formed in April 2008 following elections where the Trust’s members and staff were able to vote for the candidates they wanted to represent them on the council.    There are 15 public Governors who each represent a geographical area in Norfolk or Waveney.  There are also six staff Governors who each represent a staff group, plus four appointed Governors from local organisations – The University of East Anglia, NHS Norfolk, Norfolk County Council and a representative from the District Councils.       

Membership of the Trust is free and open to anyone aged over 12 years’ old living in Norfolk or Waveney.  Members can receive the Trust’s newsletter and have the opportunity to get involved in areas that interest them.   They can also vote in elections or stand for election as a Governor.  To join as a member, either go online at www.nnuh.nhs.uk or ring 0870 707 1628 for a membership form.
