On Wednesday 9th July 2014 there will be another opportunity for members of the public to come and meet the Governors of The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust in person.
The Trust will hold Governors’ Surgery sessions between 9am and 11am and again from 3pm to 5pm both in the main entrance area of Rotherham Hospital and the ground floor reception area of Rotherham Community Health Centre.
Rebecca Ferguson, Membership Officer at the Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust said: “The Governors’ Surgeries see our Governors out at Trust sites speaking to patients, visitors and members of staff. It’s a great opportunity to bring any items for discussion along to the Governors and anyone is welcome to come along find out about the work they do, talk to them about Trust service developments and what they want from Trust membership.”
The quarterly Council of Governors meeting will be held following the Surgery on Wednesday 16th July starting at 5.15pm in the basement meeting rooms (Barber, Canklow and Fenton) at our Woodside Building on Moorgate Road, S60 2UA.
Members of the Trust and public are invited to attend these meetings as observers and there is an opportunity at the end to ask any questions about any of the items discussed.
The time spent with members of the public and listening to their views and experiences helps our Governors fully represent their constituents at board level and any feedback is highlighted to the Trust’s Executive Team and senior staff.
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.
