Hospital Governors meet next week

The next Council of Governors' meeting at Norfolk’s largest NHS Foundation Trust takes place next week at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital from 10am – 1pm on Tuesday 24th November 2009.

The Governors will be looking at how we recruit new members of the Foundation Trust, reviewing the size of the Trust’s 19,000 membership scheme and how we involve local people. There will also be a regular update on how the Trust is performing, plus an update on the redevelopment of Cromer Hospital.

All NHS Foundation Trusts have a Council of Governors which represents the views of patients, public and staff.

As space is limited at the meeting, members of the public who are interested in attending should contact the Membership Office on 01603 287634 or e-mail membership@nnuh.nhs.uk

The Council of Governors for the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was set up in April 2008. It was formed after 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.
