The Queen Elizabeth Hospital King’s Lynn NHS Foundation Trust (QEH) is calling for representatives to join its hospital Governors’ Council and help shape the Trust’s strategic plans.

Members of the local community who are interested in supporting the development of patient care at the Trust and across Norfolk and Waveney, are encouraged to come forward and nominate themselves before 5pm on Thursday 1 July 2021.

The Governors’ Council is made up of QEH clinical and non-clinical staff, Staff Governors, Appointed Governors and Public Elected Governors from the community served by the Trust. The Governors represent the interests of the Trust’s members and partner organisations and guides and influences decisions about spending and developing services. The Governors’ Council is also responsible for appointing the Chair and Non-Executive Directors to the Board of Directors and sets the remuneration of the Chair and Non-Executive Directors.

The Governors’ Council is responsible for sharing information about key developments with the NHS Foundation Trust members and other partners, for example, by providing a link between the Trust and local GP Practice Patients’ Groups.

The Trust is recruiting one public, elected Governor for each of the constituencies of West Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, South East Lincolnshire, and Breckland, North Norfolk and the Rest of England. There is also one Governor vacancy for a non-clinical member of hospital staff.
