A chance to help shape the future of healthcare in Rotherham

13 Mar 2017 13:24:17


Members of the public who want to have their say and influence future plans for Rotherham Hospital and local health services are being encouraged to put their names forward to be a Governor of The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust.

As a Foundation Trust, the organisation has a Council of Governors which is made up of members of the public, our colleagues and our partners, who help and advise us to meet the future health needs of the community we serve.

Governors successful in the 2017 elections will join the Trust at an exciting time. A new Urgent and Emergency Care Centre will be opening at Rotherham Hospital in July and there is a lot of work being undertaken across Rotherham and the wider region to help ensure patients are receiving the care they need when they need it.

There are nine vacancies for public Governors across Rotherham North, Wentworth South, Rother Valley West, Rother Valley South, Wentworth Valley and Wentworth North. Nominations open on Wednesday 15 March with elections taking place in May 2017.

If you are over 16 years of age, have an interest in healthcare and are living in a constituency with a vacancy, you can become a Member of the Trust and stand for election as a Governor. Full training is provided and no NHS background is required. Dedication to the role is important, as Governors are required to attend a number of committees, meetings and events every year.

To find out more information on being a Governor please visit http://www.therotherhamft.nhs.uk/governors/ or contact 01709 427022.
