The CoG is made up of representatives from public and staff constituents, as well as various stakeholder and partner organisations.

The Council of Governors:

  • work with the Board of Directors to ensure that the Trust fully understands the needs of the local community
  • represent the views of the wider membership
  • appoint the Chair and other Non Executive Directors
  • as well as attend CoGs meetings and actively and constructively contribute to discussions
