Could you be our next governor?

Do you want to help improve and develop local hospital and community services?

Nominations are open for our governor elections and we’re looking for people who want to help us shape services for the next generation and beyond.

We provide acute hospital services and community services to a population of more than 450,000 people across a wide geographical area which includes North and North East Lincolnshire, East Riding of Yorkshire and West and East Lindsey.

We’re working hard to improve our services and it’s an exciting time to join us, with a £130million capital funding programme underway to overhaul our estate and the facilities we offer patients. We’re ambitious and want to do more so we are working on a programme to change our clinical services and to secure, hopefully, significant investment to further improve our estate and buildings.

Our governors act as a link between patients, the public and our Board of Directors. We’re looking for people to represent their local constituency in Goole and Howdenshire, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire. There are eight seats available.

The deadline for nominations is 5pm on Wednesday 29 September 202.

Alison Hurley, assistant director of corporate governance, said: “We’re a Foundation Trust which means we have members and governors at the heart of what we do and how we do it. If you think you can make a difference to local health services, or you know someone who you think would make a good governor, then please get in touch to with us.”
