About us

Council of Governors


As an NHS Foundation Trust, we have a Council of Governors who represent the views of the Foundation Trust membership and hold the Trust Board to account. 

The Council of Governors provide support and advice to the Trust to:

  • ensure that the Trust delivers services that best meet the needs of patients and the communities we serve
  • ensure that the Trust provides high quality, effective and patient-focused services
  • ensure high standards of corporate governance and personal conduct
  • promote effective dialogue between the Trust and the local communities we serve.

Contacting us

If you would like to contact any of the governors, email governors@york.nhs.uk stating the name of the governor you wish to contact.

Governors are not able to deal with complaints against the Hospital Trust.  You can find information about making a complaint or giving feedback on our patient experience webpage.

Governors like to ensure you get an accurate answer to the questions you send, but sometimes Governors are not best placed to give you an accurate answer, so Governors do work with the Board of Directors to collate responses.

If you would like to share your views about local health services you can contact Healthwatch as follows:

  • York - 01904 621133
  • North Yorkshire - 01904 552687
  • East Yorkshire - 01482 334999
