New governors needed at Peterborough, Stamford and Hinchingbrooke hospitals
The trust that runs Peterborough City, Hinchingbrooke and Stamford and Rutland hospitals is looking for new public governors to join its Council of Governors to represent patients’ and the public’s views on how hospital services are managed and delivered.
The North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust has opened nominations for prospective governors to come forward until Thursday, February 20.
The trust has eight public governor posts available: three representing Stamford/South Lincolnshire residents, three representing Greater Peterborough residents and two representing Huntingdonshire residents.
The successful candidates will be decided in an election among North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust members to be held from March 10 to 31.
Individuals who are keen to play an important part in how their local hospitals are run are being asked to put themselves forward for election. They are able to find out more about the role of a governor at a series of information sessions being held across our hospitals in February:

. Thursday, February 13 at 1pm - Board Room, Stamford and Rutland Hospital

Rob Hughes, trust chairman, said: “We want to tap into the power of local voices to help shape our trust as it enters its fourth year of operation since the merger of Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust with Hinchingbrooke Health Care NHS Trust in April 2017.
“I am confident that there will be no shortage of local people who want to play their part in influencing how their local hospital serves its community.”
