How will the council of governors be made up?
The council of governors will be made up of elected and appointed governors.
Elective governors will be elected by the public and staff from their respective constituencies.
Appointed governors will come from some of our partner organisations, such as local councils and the local clinical commissioning groups (CCGs).
In total, the council of governors will be made up of 23 governors:
- Twelve people elected by the public constituency including one from ‘Out of Area'.
- Five from the staff constituency.
- Six appointed by partner organisations.
