​​Governor Election 2020

In light of the coronavirus outbreak, and in line with recent advice and guidance from NHS England/Improvement, NHS Providers and the Returning Officer, the Trust has taken the decision to pause the 2020 Governor election process. We feel that this is the best way to ensure a fair and democratic process for our constituents, nominees and Governors.

The Trust has invited all Governors whose terms were due to end in May to continue on the Council of Governors until the election process is completed. This means that all constituents will continue to have a representative on the Council of Governors.

All nominations received so far will be retained until the process is resumed and nominees will not need to re-apply. In the first instance we will review the situation in mid-June with a view to the election process recommencing at the end of June if this is appropriate.    

If you have any questions or would like any further information please contact Liz Beardsall, Deputy Trust Secretary, elizabeth.beardsall@dchft.nhs.uk
