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.

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 here.

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:

North Yorkshire - 01904 552687

As of Wednesday 21 October, after reviewing the guidance for visiting as set out by NHSE, the Trust has taken the difficult decision to suspend visiting to all of our sites, with immediate effect.  We have taken this decision to limit the spread of Covid-19, and to protect vulnerable patients and ensure staff safety.  As soon as it possible to safely relax the visiting restrictions we will do so


From Monday 15 June 2020, visitors and outpatients coming into our hospitals will be asked to wear a face covering at all times, to help us reduce the spread of Covid-19.  A face covering can be as simple as a scarf or bandana that ties behind the head.  It should cover your mouth and nose while allowing you to breathe comfortably.  For more information click here
