The Council of Governors

The Council plays a crucial role in representing the needs and ideas of the community. It has important duties such as the appointment of the Non-Executive Directors of the Trust Board, including the Chair of the Trust. Governors attend meetings of the Council and can influence the way the Trust delivers services by contributing views on behalf of the members who elect them.

Governors' duties include:

  • Appointing and, if appropriate, removing the Chair and other Non-Executive Directors
  • Deciding the remuneration and allowances and other terms and conditions of office of the Chair and the other Non-Executive Directors
  • Approving any new appointment of a Chief Executive
  • Holding the Non-Executive Directors, individually and collectively, to account for the performance of the Board of Directors
  • Representing the interests of the members of the Trust as a whole and the interests of the public.
