Milton Keynes University Hospital is holding its governor elections for which voting has opened today (6 October).
Last month we asked members of our Trust to nominate themselves as governors.
One public seat is being contested in the governor elections for October 2021 – the North constituency, where three candidates are standing:
Please note that only those Trust members who live in the North constituency are able to vote for the candidates standing in this seat. The North constituency is comprised of the following areas: Blakelands, Bolbeck Park, Castlethorpe, Clifton Reynes, Cold Brayfield, Emberton, Filgrave, Gayhurst, Giffard Park, Hanslope Park, Haversham, Lathbury, Lavendon, Linford North, Little Linford, Newport Pagnell, Newton Blossomville, North Crawley, Olney, Pennylands, Ravensthorpe, Sherington, Stoke Goldington, Tyringham, Weston Underwood.
Governors are the voices representing our Trust members during these challenging times for our Trust and the NHS. They help shape the future of our Trust as an exciting new expansion programme is developed to look after our growing local population, and they seek and share the views of our members to help improve the experience our patients receive.
The deadline for voting is 5pm on 29 October. The full results, including unopposed Governors in other constituencies, will be declared on 1 November. All eligible members will receive their voting packs from UK Engage, either by email or by post, with instructions on how to vote (if you do not receive your ballot papers, please check your spam folder or email UK Engage via [email protected]). Voting is quick and can help to ensure the Council of Governors has the best representation possible.
External organisation UK Engage will be managing this election on the Trust’s behalf as Returning Officer.
