Governors

The Council of Governors consists of 16 public governors and six staff governors who have all been elected by the membership of their constituencies. It also includes nominated representatives from the Local Authority, University, and other partnership organisations.

You can find out more about the role of our governors here.   You can see a copy of the current declaration of governor interests here.

If you would like to contact any of the governors, email yhs-tr.governors@nhs.net, including the name of the governor you wish to contact.
