Norwich hospital seeks 17 governors

Norwich's biggest hopsital is seeking 17 new governors.

Nominations will open on March 7 for people wanting to stand for election as a governor at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The N&N is seeking 13 public governors from across across Norfolk and Waveney as most of the trust's existing public governors complete their three-year term. The trust is also holding elections for four staff governors.

Hospital chairman David Prior said: 'Our governors have an important role both to represent the views of the local community when decisions are made about the future of our hospitals and to be assured that the trust is operating efficiently and providing excellent care.'

The public governors will be elected by the trust's 17,000 public members who live across Norfolk and Waveney and the staff governors will be elected by the trust's 6,000 staff members.

The election is being run by Electoral Reform Services on behalf of the trust to ensure it is independent and fair.
