Governor Elections 2019

Our governors are a fundamental part of the success of the Trust and are really important to us. Elected governors represent the views of staff, patients, carers and the wider community when key decisions are made. In 2019 we are holding elections for governors in the following groups:

  • Public, Bristol (7 seats)
  • Public, North Somerset (1 seat)
  • Public, South Gloucestershire (3 seats)
  • Public, Rest of England and Wales (2 seats)
  • Staff, Nursing and Midwifery (2 seats)
  • Staff, Other clinical healthcare professionals (1 seat)
  • Staff, Non-clinical (1 seat)

Nominations closed on 4 April 2019 with 28 candidates standing for the 17 seats above. You can see the full list of candidates here.

Candidates in the Public (Rest of England and Wales) group and the Staff (Other Clinical) group have been elected unopposed. The other five groups will go to election. Members of staff and Foundation Trust members will be able to vote for their preferred candidates between 30 April-24 May.
