What is the Council of Governors?

Our Council of Governors is the ‘voice’ of local people and helps set the direction for the future of the hospital and community services, based on our Members’ views.

What is a Governor?

Members of the trust are elected by their fellow Members to sit on the Council of Governors. The Council of Governors is made up of patients, public, staff and partner representatives:

  • There are sixteen Public Governors elected by Members of the Trust. All our Public Governors can be contacted via rgh-tr.public.governors@nhs.net.  Please make it clear in your email which public governor you are trying to contact.
  • There are five Staff Governors – these are elected by staff at the Trust.
  • There are seven Governors who are nominated from partner organisations. One of these Governors must be a representative from the Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council. The remaining six aren't statutory and come from a range of organisations.

The Public Constituency

There are eight public constituencies. Seven of these reflect the seven local authority area assemblies of RMBC. Each of which consists of a number of electoral wards, the remaining constituency represent the rest of England. The map below illustrates the area assembly boundaries.
