The search is on for new governors

The Trust is looking to recruit new governors to help influence the future of its health services.

A great opportunity has arisen to become the ‘voice’ of local people as a governor in the following constituencies: City of York, Selby, Scarborough and Bridlington.

Responsibilities include providing support and advice to ensure that the trust delivers services that best meet the needs of patients and the communities and provides high quality, effective and patient-focussed services.

Governors play a critical role and provide an important link between the trust and the community, helping the trust to gather views from local people and feeding back important issues to help set the direction of future planning of health services.

All types of people become Governors. No special qualifications are required, but you must:

  • be over the age of 16
  • be a member of the Trust
  • have an interest in the health service
  • have good interpersonal skills as you will need to talk to others
  • live in the locality you wish to represent

Members wishing to put themselves forward for election as Governors must apply for a nomination form, which includes writing a statement in support of their nomination. 

From Friday 14 August 2020, a nomination form to stand for election can be obtained from the Returning Officer, Ciara Hutchinson, in the following ways:

Tel:  0208 365 8909


Post: Civica Election Services, The Election Centre, 33 Clarendon Road, London N8 0NW

Or download one from this page and print it off

 All nominations should be received by the Returning Officer, at the address detailed above, by 5pm on Monday 14 September 2020.
