The governor election also features in the latest issue of our Connections magazine - see more details in this Latest News item.
The Trust regularly invites its members to stand for election as a governor in constituencies throughout Derbyshire.
Being an NHS Foundation Trust (FT) means that control is put into the hands of staff, patients, service users, carers, partner organisations and the public.
These groups of people all have the opportunity to become members, and thereby influence decisions made by the Trust.
Governors represent the interests and views of the Trust membership.
They have a very important role and undertake a range of functions through committees, engagement groups and quality visits.
Some of these responsibilities include:
Firstly you must be a member of Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and be over the age of 16.
Download our membership leaflet for details on becoming a member of the Trust or use our online form.
Please then contact us if you are interested in standing to become a governor. We will send you a governor information pack.
