Voting gets underway to elect new governors at NNUH
Voting has begun to elect four public Governors at the Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
Ballot papers have been dispatched to the Trust’s 9,000 members in Norwich, Broadland, and Breckland. The role of a governor is to provide a direct link with the local community and represent the interests of local people as hospital services change and develop.
John Fry, Chairman of NNUH, said: “The newly elected governors will be part of our Council of Governors which make a very helpful contribution to the successful leadership of the Trust and helps us to engage effectively with the community we serve.”
Responsibilities of governors include supporting the recruitment of members, attending Council of Governor meetings and engaging with the Board of Directors on a range of issues. Governors serve a term of three years after which they can be re-elected.
There are vacancies for Governors in three areas: Norwich, Broadland, and Breckland (two governor posts).
The completed election forms must be returned by 5pm on 16th December and the results of the election will be announced on 18th December.
