Trust seeks new governors(3)

The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust is looking for people to help shape the future of health services in the area.

The Trust has more than 14,000 Members and it is looking for some of them to get more involved by becoming elected Governors. The Trust wants to recruit four new public Governors to its ranks.

“Our Governors play an important role in shaping Trust services. They really care about the health of their local communities and play an essential role in holding the Trust to account, as well as acting as
a voice for local people,” says Company Secretary Kerry Rogers “We are looking for committed people who want to join the team and help improve, develop and support positive changes to the services we offer to our patients and the wider community.”

The Trust is looking for Governors in Rotherham North, Rother Valley South, Rother Valley West and the Rest of England Constituencies. Elections will take place in the spring and any member of the public aged 16 or older who is living in a constituency with a vacancy can become a member of the Trust and stand for election as a Governor.

All newly appointed Governors are given an induction course providing information on the NHS and how it works, the key issues for the Trust and what is expected of them as Governors.
Governors serve for a fixed term of three years, and are required to attend four Council of Governors meetings a year including the Annual General Meeting.

Kerry says: “It is a very exciting time to join The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust which integrated with Rotherham Community Health Services last year. Being a Member or a Governor gives you the chance to say what you would choose for the Trust, for your care, for your community and you really can make a difference by getting involved.”

People can find out more about becoming a Governor at an informal event which is being held at Rotherham Hospital on the Tuesday 28th February. Refreshments will be served at 5.15pm and the event will start at 5.30pm. Anyone interested can book a place by calling 01709 307022.
