Two new governors have been elected to Yeovil Hospital’s Council of Governors to represent patients, staff, and local stakeholders.
Governors play a significant role in the Trust, working with the Board of Directors to help produce future plans, and ensure that the voice of members and staff inform the Trust’s decisions.
Nominations for two governors posts were sought by the Trust in June and July – one for the public constituency of Dorset, and the other representing hospital staff.
Nominations closed on Friday 19 July 2019, with two uncontested nominees securing the posts.
- Dorset – Peter Shorland
- Staff – Julie Reeve
Terms of office will commence from 1 August 2019. Whilst they normally run for three years, Governors can serve for a maximum of nine years.
If you wish to contact your local governor, please send an email to YDH.Governors@YDH.NHS.UK or call the Company Secretary on 01935 384348 who will be able to assist.
