Governor Elections poster 2022

Do you want to make a difference in your community? Do you care about healthcare and want to get involved in the NHS? 

You can do something by standing in The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust’s Governor Elections. 

If you care about your local community and about the services the Trust provides to you, your family and friends, then please read on. 

You don’t need special qualifications or experience, you are only required to become a Member of the Trust.

Public Governors are elected by other Members to sit on the Council of Governors. The Council of Governors is a group of people like you who help set the direction for the future of hospital and community services.  

Being a Governor means you can have a say in helping to plan future NHS services, and in turn you will have an impact on how healthcare is provided in Rotherham.  

Gavin Rimmer has been a Governor for almost eight years, and in 2018 became the Trust’s Lead Governor. 

“Following the past two years of the Covid pandemic, it’s vital that we now focus on what is important for Rotherham and the people living here. 

“My own experiences as a patient and parent led me to stand for election in 2014. I am passionate about improving healthcare locally and being a Governor allows me to make a difference, represent the views of the Trust members and the interests of the public. 

“We’re keen to gain more representation from across Rotherham to ensure the Trust is doing its best for all our local communities. Don’t let this opportunity pass you by, this is your chance to help your community by joining the Council of Governors.”
