Opportunity to become a Public Governor

North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust is looking to recruit Public Governors to its Council of Governors.

A public governor is elected by the members in the constituency they are standing to be a governor within. Each of the trust’s public governors is appointed for a period of up to three years.

The public constituency is drawn from seven areas. These are made up of six boroughs where the trust delivers its services (Halton, Knowsley, St Helens, Warrington, Wigan and Sefton), plus the seventh constituency called ‘other’, which represents areas outside of these six boroughs.

The number of governor seats in each borough is currently based on population size. Staff and appointed members from the trust’s partner organisations also form an important part of the Council of Governors.

How do I become a public governor?
The Trust welcomes nominations from people of any age (16 and over), race or ethnicity, religion or belief, sexual orientation, gender, disability and those with caring responsibilities.

Please note that in order to be elected to our Council of Governors you will need to live in the constituency where you would like to be nominated.

The nomination period is open until 18 January 2018 and forms can be downloaded from the trust’s website:
