Council of Governors Meeting Dates

Governor Word Cloud 2

The Council of Governors meet four times a year in public and is chaired by the Chair of the Trust.  Our Trust members and members of the public are very welcome to attend as observers. 

In addition, there is an opportunity to speak to the governors prior to the meeting at 1:00pm for half hour to ask any questions. (Please note:  this has been postponed due to the current Covid situation.)

If you would like to submit a written question to the Council of Governors, please contact us 4 working days in advance of the Council of Governor meetings, held in public, by emailing us at We ask that questions focus on items covered in the agenda for the meeting.

Visiting update

To protect our patients, staff, visitors and the community, we are again restricting visitors to all our hospitals sites so please read our latest guidance for full details before coming to our hospitals.

The decision to restrict visitors during this time has been very difficult and made only after careful consideration as we witness wider social restrictions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in light of the highly transmissible OMICRON variant.  The guidance will be reviewed regularly.
