Fancy getting involved with your local NHS? Become a Governor!

Nominations to become a governor for the Trust are now open.

If you are a member of the Trust you can stand in the elections to become a governor in Sandwell, Dudley and Walsall, but you need to get your nomination form in by 12 noon on Friday 24th May. 

Governors represent the interests of foundation trust members, the patients, staff and the wider public, making sure their views are listened to in shaping services to suit the needs of local people and communities.

Anyone can stand as a governor providing they are a member of the Trust and are aged over 16 years of age on the date they are nominated for election or appointment.

The role is voluntary and governors receive reimbursement for reasonable expenses incurred, such as travelling costs, whilst undertaking their duties.
