Residents can find out more about becoming a Peterborough hospital governor at a series of sessions this summer.
Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is holding four information sessions for members of the public who want to learn more about becoming a hospital governor.
The first session will be held on Thursday 23 July, from 3pm to 5pm, in the main atrium at Peterborough City Hospital. Any attendees are also welcome to stay for the Trust’s Annual Public Meeting which will take place in the hospital’s Learning Centre, from 5.45pm that evening.
Further information sessions are also planned. These are:
Tuesday 28 July: 5pm to 6.30pm, Peterborough City Hospital main atrium
Tuesday 4 August: 3.30pm to 5.30pm, Stamford Hospital reception area
Saturday 8 August: 12.30pm to 2pm, Peterborough City Hospital main atrium
People attending the sessions can pick up an information pack and talk to current Trust governors to find out more about the role.
The sessions are taking place ahead of formal elections which will be held in September. There will be 14 places up for election on the Trust’s Council of Governors. The Trust is looking to appoint nine public and five staff governors.
Those unable to make any of the information sessions can contact Jane Pigg, the Trust’s Company Secretary, on 01733 677926 to obtain an information pack.
The Trust’s Council of Governors is made up of representatives from the general public, Trust staff and other key partners of the Trust. The Council of Governors works with the Trust Board of Directors to ensure our hospitals are run appropriately for the needs of the communities of Peterborough and Stamford.
