Governor elections 2017
Elections are taking place to choose 8 new Governors of HPFT
If you are a member and would like to take a more active role in the Trust we are looking for candidates with a real passion for mental health, physical health and learning disability issues to become Governors. Whether you have expertise in a specific area, a lived experience of the issues faced by our service users and carers or a genuine desire to play a vital part in your local community, we are keen to hear from you.
You don’t need any qualifications to be a Governor just a real willingness to get involved. Our current Governors come from many different backgrounds: some are former service users, others are carers, there are those who have expertise in a specific field or just a genuine wish to get involved and support their local mental health trust.
This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone interested in the future of local health services
As a Governor you will be helping to ensure that the Trust meets its objectives. You will act in an advisory capacity to the Board of Directors on the direction of the Trust and help to ensure that it adheres to its vision and values. You will also be consulted on plans for changes to the way local health services are delivered.
Governors are vitally important in forming a link to the communities that the Trust serves including service users and carers. We hope you will choose to be one of them and join the HPFT community.
