Meet your hospital Governor

A drop-in session has being arranged for members of the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to meet the Governors who represent them. It takes place from 3.30pm to 4.30pm on Thursday 27th May in the Boardroom at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, Level 4, West Outpatients.

Members who are interested in meeting their Governors can just turn up as there is no need to book.  If you wish to join as a member, please call the Membership Office on 01603 287634 or visit Membership is free and open to anyone aged over 12 years who lives in Norfolk and Waveney. 

Chairman David Prior said:  “It's important that our Governors stay in touch with the members they represent and hear about people's experiences of our hospitals first hand and that members feel able to contact Governors directly.”  

The drop-in session will be followed by a formal meeting of the Council of Governors which begins at 5pm.  The meeting will include a regular update on the quality, safety and performance of services, plus the outlook for the year ahead.   

Other items on the agenda include the Trust's annual plan which describes how hospital services will develop over the coming year and the quality report which sets out the Trust's priorities for the quality and safety of services.   

As space is limited at the formal Council of Governors meeting, members of the public who are interested in attending should contact the Membership Office on 01603 287634 or e-mail

Notes to editors

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