Council of Governors Meeting Dates

The Council of Governors meet four times a year in public and is chaired by the Chair of the Trust, Susan Symington.  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 10 working days in advance of the Council of Governor meetings, held in public, by emailing the Foundation Trust Secretary

Governors and the Trust want to be as helpful as possible to you when you ask us a question.  To make sure that you get the most appropriate answer, Governors have asked the Foundation Trust Secretary to reply to you if it might be more suitable for your question to be asked at the next Board of Directors meeting.  If this is the case, your question and the Board of Directors' reply will also be reported to the Governors at the next Council of Governors meeting.

We have been keeping our governors informed by regular communications being sent out.  We had a virtual Q&A session with the Chief Executive and the Chair at the June Council of Governors meeting and we are working towards getting back to some normality.  Our September public meeting was held virtually using webex and in light of the continuing pandemic situation, we will use the same arrangements for our December meeting.. 

 If you would like to join a virtual meeting then please email  Details of how to join the meeting will be emailed to you nearer the time. 

Please note that this will be a meeting held in public, not a public meeting so you will not be able to contribute to discussions or ask questions.
