Council of governors
The council of governors is made up of governors elected by North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust members and governors appointed by partner organisations such as universities and local authorities.
Governors have a number of statutory roles and they help our organisation to develop its long term strategy. Having a council of governors is a feature of any NHS foundation trust and it gives local people a greater say in how we plan for the future. To stand for governor you must be a member of our trust.
Our council of governors is made up staff, public and appointed governors from our partner organisations who:
- help us shape our plans for the future
- appoint the chairman and non-executive directors of the trust
- approve the chief executive’s appointment
I’d like to stand as a governor. What’s involved?
Governors are elected from within our membership. Our members serve the areas Stockton, Hartlepool, Sedgefield and Easington.
Governors serve for a period of up to three years. They can stand for election again when their term of office comes to an end.
Governors are also members of different sub-committees looking at areas like strategy, transport and recruitment. Membership of these committees depends on the amount of time each governor has to spare.
