What is a governor?
Governors have an important role in making an NHS foundation trust publicly accountable for the services it provides. They bring valuable perspectives and contributions to our activities. Governors hold non-executive directors to account for the performance of the Board and represent the interests of NHS foundation trust members and the public. Governors are volunteers and are not paid. You can find out more in the Brief guide for governors.
