Hospital Governor elections go ahead

Seventeen candidates have put themselves forward for Governor elections at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. There are nine candidates for Norwich, four for Broadland and four for the nursing and midwifery staff Governor position.

The public Governors will be elected by the 6,000 public members of the Trust living in Norwich and Broadland.  The hospital’s 2,400 nursing and midwifery staff will vote for the staff Governor who will represent their interests. 

David Prior, Chairman of NNUH, said:  “We’re delighted that there has been so much interest in these Governor positions and look forward to welcoming the successful candidates onto our Council of Governors.”

The Council of Governors represents local people, patients and staff when decisions are made about the future of Cromer Hospital and the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. 

Electoral Reform Services is running the election on behalf of the Trust to ensure it is independent and fair.  The ballot papers will be dispatched on 15th November and the results of the election will be announced on 9th December.
