Have you got what it takes to be the next Governor?

Nominations are opening for a new public Governor for the Trust, for the Walsall area on Friday 24th January. Any Walsall resident over the age of 16 years with an interest in specialist healthcare can stand.

Governors represent the interests of the people in the area they serve and provide a vital link between us and the communities we serve.

As well as gathering the views from local people and feeding that information back, governors also work to improve health services for the future.

Mel Passmore, Wolverhampton Governor, said being a governor is a challenging and rewarding role.

"In Walsall, where we provide specialist learning disabilities services, two public governors have worked hard over the last two years to ensure the interests of Walsall people are taken into account when services are planned," he said.

"If you have an interest in services provided by the Trust, then this is your chance to represent your local community.  Being a Foundation Trust gives patients a much better say in the way things are run and by being a governor, you can help Walsall members shape the future of healthcare delivered by the Trust." 

All existing Walsall members will receive nominations paperwork automatically but if you would like the opportunity to run for governor, then get in touch with our Membership Team on 08000 130 103.

Nominations open on Friday 24th January and voting will commence on Friday 28th February.

Nominations are also open for four staff governors who represent the views and opinions of colleagues within their area.
