Election opens for NNUH Governors in Norwich and Broadland
People living in Norwich or Broadland can apply to be a governor at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust from today (9th October 2013).
Nominations have opened for the Trusts governor elections and anyone interested in applying can request a nomination form by telephoning Electoral Reform Services (ERS) on 020 8889 9203. ERS is managing the election on behalf of the Trust to ensure it is independent and fair.
The 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 the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and Cromer Hospital. Governors also have the opportunity to be involved in areas of the hospitals work such as inspecting wards and outpatient areas as part of the quality assurance audit programme or working with hospital teams to improve standards of care.
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.
Nomination forms must be returned to ERS by noon on 6th November. The results of the election will be announced on 24th December.
People interested in becoming a member or finding our more about the role of Governor can telephone Janice Bradfield in the Membership office on 01603 287634 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
