Election of Governors 2019

Welcome to the online nomination site for the 2019 Election to the Council of Governors. The Trust is inviting nominations for the following vacancies:

Public Constituency
Broadland  1 seat
Norwich  3 seats
Rest of England  1 seat
South Norfolk  1 seat
Classes of the Staff Constituency  
Nursing and Midwifery  1 seat
Volunteers and Contractors  1 seat


The Council of Governors forms a direct link between NNUH and the communities it serves, and ensures that the voice of the public, patients, service users and staff is used to inform the Trust’s decisions, improve care and enhance the patient experience.

Elected governors serve a term of three years, after which they can be re-elected. Newly elected governors are provided with induction training which will provide them with the skills and information they require to fulfil their role.

The Council of Governors will meet at least four times a year; the Trust will provide support to meetings. Governors will not receive payment for their role; they will however be entitled to claim relevant expenses i.e. travel expenses.

Governors can also get involved in hospital working groups such as those looking at improving outpatient services, expansion plans, and other changes to services.

The closing date for nominations is 17:00 on Wednesday 30 October
