Hospital seeks Governors for Norwich and Broadland
The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is seeking to elect two Governors one in Norwich and one in Broadland. The vacancies have arisen as two of the Trusts Governors have reached the end of their three year term.
The elected Governors will become part of the Trusts Council of Governors and have a role in influencing the development of services at Cromer Hospital and the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. Governors also have the opportunity to get involved in areas of the hospitals work such as inspecting ward and outpatient areas as part of the quality audit programme or working with hospital teams to improve standards of care.
John Fry , Chairman of NNUH, said: The successful candidates will be part of our Council of Governors which represents local people, patients and staff.
The Governors will be elected by the 6,000 public members of the Trust living in Norwich and Broadland. Membership is free and open to anyone living in Norfolk or Waveney.
The NHS Foundation Trust is also holding an election for two staff Governors in the Nursing and Midwifery, and Volunteers and Contractors constituencies. The election will start from 9th October 2013 when nominations open and members will be able to request a nomination form from Electoral Reform Services (ERS) by telephoning 020 8889 9203.
ERS is running the election on behalf of the Trust to ensure it is independent and fair. Nomination forms must be returned to ERS by noon on 6th November. The results of the election will be announced on 24th December.
