What would you ask our Trust Governors?

21 Apr 2015 16:10:54


 Do you have a burning question about our hospital or community services you want to ask our Governors?

Do you want to know how our Governors influence Trust decision making or how you can get involved?

Members of the public are invited along with members of The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust to come and speak to our Governors at the next Governors’ Surgery on Wednesday 29 April 2015.

The surgeries are a great opportunity to contribute and help our Governors influence Trust decision-making to get better outcomes for our local community. The Governors of the Trust represent everyone who lives or works in Rotherham and uses local hospital or community health services provided by the Trust. In order to do that they need to hear all about your views, experiences and to discuss any issues you may consider important to the effective running of the Trust.

The Trust will hold sessions between 9am and 11am and again from 3pm to 5pm, both in the main entrance of Rotherham Hospital and the reception area of Rotherham Community Health Centre on Greasborough Road.

Diabetes Clinical Nurse Specialist for the Trust and Staff Governor for our Professional Nurses and Midwives, Fiona Smith said: “It is important for me to meet with members of the public and colleagues at the Trust, as I am in a position to give the Board of Directors’ insight into how it feels to receive care, or give care at a grass roots level.

“Issues that can be seen as trivial to some can have a big impact on how the Trust is viewed. My role as staff governor allows me to bring any concerns to the attention of the Board of Directors in an unbiased way via the work of the Council of Governors. It also allows me to raise awareness of good practice for recognition by the board of directors, which could otherwise go unnoticed.”

The Governors’ Surgery will be followed by May’s Board of Directors meeting at the Trust on Tuesday 26 May 2015. The general public and members of the Trust are invited to attend the meeting as observers, which has a prompt start of 9.30am and will be held in the Boardroom at Rotherham Hospital, which is on the General Management Corridor, Level D.

Membership of the Trust is free and open to everyone aged 16 or over. Membership allows people to keep-up-to-date with Trust news, receive invitations to events and become eligible to vote, or stand in the Council of Governors elections.
